Rambus Inc. creates semiconductor and IP products, spanning memory and interfaces to security, smart sensors and lighting. The company’s chips, customizable IP cores, architecture licenses, tools, services, software, training and innovations improve the competitive advantage of its customers. The company collaborates with the industry, partnering with major ASIC and system-on-chip (SoC) designers, foundries, IP developers, EDA companies and validation labs. The company’s products are integrated into various devices and systems, powering and securing various applications, including Big Data, Internet of Things (IoT), mobile, consumer and media platforms. The company licenses its inventions and solutions, sells its semiconductor products, and provides services to major companies. The company has four operational units: Memory and Interfaces Division (MID), which focuses on the design, development and licensing of technology that is related to memory and interfaces; Cryptography Research Division (CRD), which focuses on the design, development and licensing of technologies for chip and system security, anti-counterfeiting, smart ticketing and mobile payments; Emerging Solutions Division, which includes the company’s computational sensing and imaging group along with its development efforts in the area of emerging technologies; and Lighting and Display Technologies (LDT), which focuses on the design, development and licensing of technologies for lighting. Memory and Interfaces There are four main areas of focus in the company’s MID, such as mobile memory, server-based memory, serial link designs, and custom solutions. The primary markets for these technologies include dynamic random access memory devices; NAND devices; SoC devices; silicon physical IP; and memory buffer chips. In these markets, memory technology transitions, serial link transitions and SoC microarchitecture transitions or overall process technology node transitions provide opportunities. The company has developed technologies, advanced designs, and development tools for building high-performance and low-power memory and serial-link interface cores for semiconductor chips. The company develops both proprietary and industry-standard interfaces that it provides to its customers under technology license agreements. The company also offers a range of services as part of its technology licenses, which could include know-how and technology transfer, product design and development, system integration, and other services. The company offers a set of solutions under the name R+ improved standard solutions. The company announced the R+ DDR4 Server DIMM chip, the RCD26, which is designed to enable top-of-the-line performance and capacity with optimized power efficiency to advance critical data center and enterprise server infrastructure. The company focuses its resources and effort to help bring products to market under technology license agreements with major companies in the industry, as well as the company’s Rambus-branded buffer chip product that is under development and not yet commercially available. Chip and System Security Technology The company, through its CRD, owns a portfolio of patented inventions and technology solutions that are needed for creating secure tamper-resistant electronic devices and systems. These patented differential power analysis (DPA) countermeasures are critical in protecting devices against side channel attacks, such as DPA, which involve monitoring the variations in power consumption or electromagnetic emissions of a device. In addition, the company’s hardware-based cores provide a hardware-based solution to protect electronics systems from side-channel attacks, counterfeiting, piracy, and other forms of attack. For DPA countermeasures, the company’s business model is to provide a combination of patent licenses, technology, consulting services (training, evaluation, and design), and test equipment, as well as DPA resistant cores and software libraries. The company is recognized worldwide for its expertise in this area, and the company’s strategy is to strengthen its offering beyond patent licensing. DPA protec
