Rambus, a leading designer of interface and DRAM technologies, has clarified its positions in regards of the case that is set to be reheard in October and which involves Hynix Semiconductor and Micron Technology.

“While both Micron and Hynix did file suit against Rambus back in 2000, the allegations at that time were around the validity of the Rambus patents, not monopolization claims. Also, the Delaware court found in favor of Micron with respect to spoliation, to which Rambus has appealed,” said Linda Ashmore, director of corporate communications at Rambus.

 According to Rambus, the Northern District of California court found in favor of Rambus following a trifurcated case that included spoliation, but also including patent infringement and Rambus behavior at JEDEC. 

“In April 2009 the court validated the $397 million judgment in Rambus’ favor.  Hynix has appealed that decision. Both of these appeals are going through the CAFC together.  A hearing was held in early April 2010 and the news this week indicates the CAFC has asked for a rehearing of the appeals on October 7, 2010,” stated Ms. Ashmore.

 DRAM makers accuse Rambus of illegal patenting of crucial interface technologies.
