Nvidia Corp., a leading supplier of graphics processing units (GPUs) and other multimedia chips, and Rambus, a specialist in the field of memory and interconnection technologies, on Friday said that they had signed a patent license agreement related to certain memory controllers.

Under the agreement, Rambus has granted Nvidia a patent license for certain  memory controllers at a 1% royalty rate for SDR memory controllers and a 2% royalty rate for other memory controllers, including DDR, DDR2, DDR3, LPDDR, LPDDR2, GDDR2, GDDR3, GDDR4, and portions of GDDR5 memory controllers. Nvidia has granted no licenses to Rambus.

The signed patent license agreement went into effect on August 12, 2010. The parties have not signed any releases of liability, nor dismissed any outstanding litigation between them, which means that Nvidia will still appeal the court order to license technologies from Rambus. The company was forced to sign the agreement since otherwise its products would be banned from selling in the U.S.

The terms of the license are per the agreement that Rambus offers as part of its commitment with the European Commission.
