Rambus, a high-speed chip interfaces specialist, today announced it has signed a patent license agreement with NEC Electronics Corporation that allows the development and manufacture of memory controllers based on various Rambus innovations.

The agreement is for a five-year term, with the possibility of renewal or extension. The license’s scope covers memory controllers compatible with SDR, DDR and DDR2 SDRAM as well as future memory controller innovations, such as XDR memory. Rambus will receive royalties on sales of licensed products. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
