Three people familiar with the matter said on Tuesday that European Union antitrust regulators may open an investigation into Qualcomm, the world’s Number 1 mobile chipmaker. The investigation is based on a four-year-old complaint by a unit of Qualcomm’s rival Nvidia Corporation. British cellphone chipmaker Icera, acquired by Nvidia in 2011, took its grievances to the European Commission in June 2010, where it accused Qualcomm of anti-competitive behavior. One of the sources, who declined to be named because of the sensitivity of the matter, said “The Commission may open a case after the summer.” A possible EU probe comes as Qualcomm seeks to end an investigation by China’s pricing regulator into monopoly practices.
