Long time awaiting vindication

Rambus, Inc. won a jury verdict on Wednesday in its case against memory manufacturer, Hynix Semiconductor. The jury determined that Rambus acted properly without fraud or anti-competitive means while a member of the standard-setting organization JEDEC during its participation in the group in the early 1990s and further found that the memory manufacturers did not meet their burden of proof for antitrust and fraud claims.

Rambus has already been awarded $133.6 million in damages by a jury in 2006 against Hynix for infringing a variety of Rambus patents. Hynix originally filed its claim against Rambus in 2000. At that time the Judge split the case into three separate phases, and Rambus prevailed in all three phases. 

Rambus still has separate infringement cases pending against Nanya Technology Corporation, Micron Technologies, Samsung and Hynix in other U.S. District Courts.

"This ruling should put to rest a series of ongoing allegations Rambus has endured for many years," said Tom Lavelle, Senior Vice President and General Counsel at Rambus. "Our business is to license our revolutionary technology to the industry for fair compensation. We are pleased to have this decision behind us as we continue to engage with the industry to deliver compelling products to the market."

Rambus has spent years attempting to enforce its patents on memory that is used in almost every PC and server made.
