The world's largest computer disk drive maker, Seagate Technology, has filed a patent infringement suit against the company STEC Inc, a maker of flash-memory storage products.

STEC said it was one of the first companies to build solid state drives as early as 1994, and it held such technology including prior patents, dating more than a decade prior to any of Seagate's patents.
