SAN JOSE, Calif. - Rambus Inc. has renewed its patent license agreement with Renesas Electronics Corp.
Renesas Technology Corp. and NEC Electronics Corporation, merged in April 2010 to form Renesas Electronics. This agreement covers the use of Rambus patents in a broad range of logic integrated circuit products offered by Renesas Electronics. Specific terms of the agreement are confidential.
I wonder what is the technology that Rambus have to take from Renesas. As far as know Rambus always seen as a company who does work to get the patents. And their technology in the DRAM is something different from everyone and hugely used in graphic cards.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
