Rambus, who is known for its many patent infringement lawsuits against chip makers in the past years, has had a pleasant third quarter ended September 30. The company managed to generate a quarterly revenue of $89.9 million, up 17% from the second quarter.
Revenue for the nine months of 2016 was $239 million, which was up 9% over the prior year period. Total operating costs and expenses for the quarter were $78 million, 21% higher than the previous quarter and 39% higher than the third quarter of 2015.
The company has signed a contract with FPGA-leader Xilinx to expand their footprint beyond DRAM and SoC sectors.
Besides, they’re working with the GPU giant NVIDIA – NVIDIA has licensed its differential power analysis countermeasures for use in GPUs powering AI, self-driving cars and more. Rambus designed the countermeasures to protect NVIDIA’s GPUs from side-channel attacks that steal encryption keys by measuring a device’s power consumption.
