District court throws out Rambus verdictA US district court has set aside a jury verdict from the May trial of Rambus, clearing the memory chip designer of allegations it set standards relating to a technology used to accelerate memory chips.
The court's decision to throw out
the verdict accusing Rambus of seeking patents on DDR (double
data rate) SDRAM (synchronous dynamic RAM) while participating in
a technical components standards body, is part of the post-trial legal wrangling that has earmarked Rambus' case against Germany's Infineon Technologies. Rambus still plans to appeal the patent infringement case as well as the jury's verdict on Rambus' behaviour at JEDEC regarding SDRAM.
