The U.S. International Trade Commission on Wednesday notified Rambus, a technology developer, that it would extend the target date for completion of the investigation of Rambus case against Nvidia and its partners until July 26, 2010.

 

The ITC has requested further briefing regarding a license agreement between Rambus and Samsung Electronics. This action was brought by Rambus against Nvidia and other respondents alleging violation of Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930. The action is Investigation Number 337-TA-661.

Earlier ITC found Nvidia not guilty of infringing a number of Rambus patents, however, there are still things that the commission is investigating.

“We are confident the ITC will ultimately affirm that Rambus patents are valid and infringed by the respondents. While we are of course disappointed in the delay, we will comply with the commission’s request for further briefing in this matter,” said Thomas Lavelle, senior vice president and general counsel at Rambus.
