[Korea.net News, Science / Tech, October 1 2007] Hynix, Ovonyx in cross-licensing agreement on next-generation memory chips

Korean chipmaker Hynix Semiconductor Inc. said Monday (Oct. 1) it has reached a cross-licensing agreement with Ovonyx of the United States to develop next-generation memory chips.

The deal allows Hynix, the world's second-largest maker of computer memory chips, to use Ovonyx's patents on phase-change memory chips, or PRAM, which many scientists say offer a higher level of performance than flash chips, widely used in digital cameras and other handheld gadgets.
