Fujitsu previously agreed to a license for Rambus technology in March 2006.
"As a global leader in the semiconductor market, Fujitsu Semiconductor is an important customer and this agreement validates the continued strength of our portfolio," said Ronald Black, Rambus CEO, in a statement.
Earlier this week, the Bloomberg news service reported that Fujitsu's parent company hired Swiss financial services firm UBS AG to help with the sale of Fujitsu's semiconductor business.
