Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS), the innovative technology solutions company that
brings invention to market, today introduced the Rambus R+™ family of enhanced
standard solutions, specifically designed for the memory and interface market.
Fully compatible with industry standards, R+ solutions offer compelling
benefits such as improved power efficiency and performance. The R+ family
allows customers to differentiate their products in a cost-effective manner
with improved time-to-market. Rambus solutions are also available with
collaborative design and integration services to optimize design and
development cycles.

“The rapidly increasing demands of media-rich mobile devices and cloud-based
services often outpace current memory and interface standard offerings,” said
Kevin Donnelly, senior vice president and general manager of the Memory and
Interface Division at Rambus. “The R+ solutions are designed to satisfy these
demands by providing a significant improvement in power and performance while
maintaining compatibility with today’s industry standards. This approach
builds on our proven track record in standards-compliant interfaces while
helping our customers to differentiate their products and get to market

The initial development focus for the R+ family is on memory and interface
solutions for mobile and server applications, including dynamic and
non-volatile memories and chip-to-chip interfaces.

The first Rambus R+ LPDDR3 solution is R+ LPDDR3. The R+ LPDDR3 architecture,
which includes both a controller and a DRAM interface, can reduce memory
system power consumption by up to 25%, enabling significantly increased
battery life for mobile devices. In addition, the R+ LPDDR3 architecture
supports data rates up to 3200 megabits per second (Mbps), double the
performance of existing LPDDR3 technologies. This performance benefit
translates to improved high-end smart phone and tablet functionality such as
gaming and HD video streaming, as well as improved battery life.
