Qualcomm Inc. said a federal judge's order to stop selling chips for cellphones that infringe patents held by its Irvine-based rival, Broadcom Inc., would have an immediate, short-term effect on its business.

U.S. District Judge James Selna of Santa Ana ruled Monday that San Diego-based Qualcomm couldn't sell chips that rely on three Broadcom patents.

Qualcomm said it was working on new chips that sidestep the Broadcom patents.
