Rambus sues memory chipmakers

May 5, 2004 – Rambus Inc. has filed an antitrust suit against Hynix, Infineon, Micron, and Siemens, alleging the quartet illegally fixed pricing and production in an effort to undercut Rambus’ technology. The suit is based on litigation going back to 2002 involving Rambus’ efforts to get its SDRAM technology included into standards, which also have been investigated by the FTC for possible antitrust violations. Rambus seeks an injunction and damages that reportedly could top $1 billion.
