"This milestone agreement with Nanya marks a new era at Rambus where we have no outstanding litigation and can focus 100 percent on working closely with customers to solve technology challenges," said Dr. Ron Black, president and chief executive officer of Rambus.

"We are pleased to put this matter behind us and explore mutually beneficial engagement opportunities to improve our products with Rambus technologies," said Charles Kau, president of Nanya.
