Rambus seeks $868 million against Hynix

Rambus, a Los Altos, CA-based technology company, on April 13 asked a federal jury in San Jose to award the company as much as $868 million in damages from a South Korean computer chip manufacturer Hynix for patent infringement.

In a case that was filed in 2000, Rambus accuses Hynix, a manufacturer of computer memory chips, of infringing on patents the company's founders, Mike Farmwald and Stanford University Professor Mark Horowitz, filed in the early 1990s. According to Rambus, Hynix refuses to pay royalties on the patented technology that it uses in manufacturing memory chips that are used today in a wide variety of computer applications.
