WASHINGTON -- Major DRAM manufacturers are quietly planning to file an industry antitrust complaint against Rambus Inc. with the Federal Trade Commission, according to high-level industry sources last week.
The move would be a pre-emptive strike to have Rambus' synchronous-DRAM interface patents declared unenforceable. The biggest memory makers also want to block further attempts by Rambus to force them to pay royalties on their mainstream SDRAMs, double-data-rate SDRAMs, and logic controllers with synchronous interfaces.
Sounds like the DRAM manufacturers have had just about enough of Rambus's shenanigans. If this all proves to be true, I wouldn't be surprised to see RMBS stock take a significant price hit. You can read the entire SBN article here.
