SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- April 15, 2013

Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS), the innovative technology solutions company that
brings invention to market, today announced it has received a “Best Paper
Award” for one of the papers it presented at the 2013 DesignCon. The paper,
titled, “3D Si Interposer Design and Electrical Performance Study”, was
awarded in the DesignCon Chip-Level Design category.

The paper, developed based on a study in conjunction with the Industrial
Technology Research Institute (ITRI), outlined a silicon interposer design
with multiple active silicon dice on both sides of the interposer. This
double-sided interposer used both RDL layers and TSVs for the system signal
and power delivery. Rambus and ITRI engineers presented detailed results of
the electrical performance for the RDL layers and TSVs during the recent
DesignCon. The study provided design guidelines for signal routing and signal
integrity up to 20GHz, showcasing correlation between the electrical
measurement results of the system and the modeling results from a 3D field

“DesignCon Paper Awards recognize outstanding contributions to the educational
goals of the DesignCon program. Papers are judged both on the merits of the
written document and on the quality of their presentation at DesignCon
2013.We congratulate these authors for producing a high-quality paper and
presenting it in a lucid and compelling manner,” said DesignCon’s Technical
Program Director, Barry Sullivan of the International Engineering Consortium.
