X-bit Labs reports Rambus has reached a settlement with the European Commission. Full details about the royalty rates can be found in the article.
Rambus, a leading developer of memory and interconnection technologies has announced that it had reached a tentative settlement with the European Commission to resolve the pending case against the Company. Under the proposed resolution, the Commission would make no finding of liability relative to JEDEC-related charges, and no fine would be assessed against Rambus. However, Rambus will have to cap royalty rates on standard memory.
On 30 July 2007, the European Commission adopted a Statement of Objections against Rambus. This outlined the Commission’s preliminary view that Rambus may have infringed Article 82 of the EC Treaty by abusing a dominant position in the market for dynamic random access memory (DRAM).
