Rambus and NVIDIA Sign Patent License Agreement

Rambus Inc., one of the world's premier technology licensing companies, announced today it has signed a patent license agreement with NVIDIA.

The agreement covers the use of Rambus patented innovations in a broad range of integrated circuit (IC) products offered by NVIDIA. In addition, the two companies have settled all outstanding claims, including resolution of past use of Rambus' patented innovations. The term of this agreement is five years; other details are confidential.

"This is an important license agreement as it settles our differences and allows us to move forward with NVIDIA, the leader in visual and parallel computing," said Harold Hughes, president and chief executive officer at Rambus. "Looking forward, we have the opportunity to focus on developing innovative solutions in concert with our licensees to help bring compelling, innovative products to market."

see this as rambus behaving at the table rather then a naughty child throwing food at everyone else.

being willing to talk can open many doors rather then just going at them with a knife which is what Rambus have been doing, Suing every company or manufacturer that they think are using their patents at random and most probably without warning rather then the more civilised aproach and negotiating a deal where the manufacturer can use their patents rather then just say "no no no no not happening. wtf?? youve already done it?! ok - we want $10mil and we want you to stop using our patents"
