$15M per quarter for 10-years...not bad...roughly $600M for Rambus if my math is correct...has the stock reacted to this? Kris

I think it's fair to say that Rambus must have something worth licensing with that kind of agreement! Others to follow suit?

Rambus has very nice IP portfolio and has been extracting nice revenue out of this for several years...they needed to litigate in teh past, I think the current CEO wants to stop litigating and just makes licensing deals, Samsung would be an example of that strategy...Kris

Rambus is certainly doing great job in developing new technologies that could impact mass products.

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.
