It would be interesting to know how much Freescale had to fork over for this license. I guess Freescale must have decided this was easier and/or cheaper than a looming court battle.

I wonder as well what the cost was? I also wonder if this will drive the others named in the lawsuit to reconsider and settle with Rambus. I do not know the particulars of the dispute but in general it is better to settle out of court than in.
