Micron To License DRAM Technologies To Nanya

News

Micron Technology, has announced it has entered into a memorandum of understanding to grant Nanya Technology an option to license Micron 1x and 1y DRAM technologies. This new license agreement is in addition to Micron's existing license agreement for 20 nanometer (nm) technology with Nanya.

"Micron and Nanya have enjoyed a strong relationship over the years, and this agreement extends our strategic relationship while also providing further value to both companies and their shareholders," said Micron CEO Mark Durcan.

Under the license agreements contemplated by the memorandum, in each case when Nanya exercises its option to license the 1x or 1y technology and subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, Micron will receive an equity stake in Nanya and also royalties based on revenues from products implementing the technology—subject to an agreed cap. The new licenses are limited to a specific facility footprint, are subject to an overall quarterly cap on production, are not transferrable and terminate upon a change of control of Nanya. The new licenses do not impact the existing 20nm DRAM technology agreement between Micron and Nanya.

"Nanya and Micron have a strong and successful history of collaboration, and we expect to build on this foundation with our new agreement," said Nanya President Dr. Pei-Ing Lee.

The memorandum of understanding provides an additional 60-day period for Micron and Nanya to enter into definitive agreements with further specified mechanics and details of the licenses. The memorandum is subject to termination if these additional agreements are not reached within that timeframe or if certain other conditions are not met.
