Founded in March 1990, by Dr. Mike Farmwald and Dr. Mark Horowitz, Rambus Inc. developed revolutionary technology for use in the semiconductor industry. Using a unique business model, Rambus develops and licenses advanced chip connection technology that enables semiconductor manufacturers to produce scalable bandwidth, memory and ASIC devices. The advantage of this technology is its high bandwidth and scalability - making it easy for semiconductor manufacturers to keep pace with the demands of today's rapidly changing microprocessor and controller speeds. Rambus and its partners provide technology that is significantly faster than conventional dynamic-random-access-memory (DRAM) devices. A single Rambus DRAM device (RDRAM') transfers data at speeds up to 1.6 GB/sec and by 2005 this will be 2.4 GB/sec. Twenty-five of the worlds leading semiconductor manufacturers have licensed Rambus technology. Products utilizing this technology have found their way into over 300 computer, communications, and consumer applications. These include "Best-of-Class" servers, workstations, desktop PCs, video game consoles, high-definition DTVs and network communications products.
