Rambus, Infineon settle patent suits

Rambus and Infineon have finally settled an ongoing lawsuit involving patents that Rambus claims are used in standard memory chips.

Infineon agreed to pay Rambus $5.85 million per quarter between November 2005 and November 2007 in exchange for a worldwide license to existing and future Rambus patents and patent applications for use in Infineon memory products. Infineon also granted Rambus a fully-paid perpetual license for memory interfaces. The companies also said they would settle all ongoing lawsuits between them.
