Rambus Inc. on Thursday announced that Toshiba Corp. has become the first licensee for the next generation high-speed Yellowstone memory interface.
Yellowstone reduces the pin count for memory chips as well as lowers the cost of controller chips. It is targeted for use in new generation consumer electronic products where extremely high data rates are needed.
