Rambus has won its case against Hynix, with the court ordering Hynix to pay $306.9M

Rambus allegation that Hynix and other large memory manufacturers infringed on its patents in producing DDR DRAM, SDRAM and DDR2 DRAM memory techniques. The vast majority of the PCs and servers made during the last several years have used these types of memory.

The jury on this case determined that Hynix had infringed on 10 of Rambus’ patents. The verdict was announced on Monday in U.S. district court in San Jose, Calif. The award covers compensation for Hynix sales in the United States between June 2000 and the end of 2005, according to a statement by Rambus.  
Rambus will seek an injunction barring Hynix from selling DDR, DDR2 and SDRAM this summer. Defendants often agree to pay additional amounts to the plaintiffs through a license to avoid facing the injunction. Rambus also has suits pending against Samsung Electronics, Nanya Technology, Micron Technology and this verdict can prompt Rambus to file even more lawsuits.
