Short Take: Nat Semi licenses Rambus

National Semiconductor announced that it will license the 800-MHz Rambus memory interface and use it in conjunction with its integrated microprocessors from its Cyrix division. The alliance effectively means that Cyrix's relatively inexpensive integrated processors, which are used in terminals, low-end computers, and information appliances, will support the high-speed Rambus memory by early 2000. Nearly all other microprocessor companies have said they will support Rambus-style DRAM, which will start emerging later this year.
