Rambus loses antitrust ruling

Hynix Semiconductor, the world’s second-largest memory chipmaker, yesterday welcomed a U.S. jury’s decision to reject Rambus’ antitrust allegation against it.

On Wednesday, a San Francisco jury ruled that Hynix and Micron Technology, a U.S. chipmaker, did not engage in joint illegal actions to prevent Rambus from expanding in the semiconductor market.

The latest ruling clears the possibility of making a damage payment to Rambus, in an amount that could have reached as much as $1.2 billion.

Rambus, which licenses its technology to chipmakers, filed the complaint in 2004 against Hynix, Micron and Samsung Electronics, accusing the three chipmakers of illegally colluding to keep its technology from taking hold in the market.
