TEXAS INSTRUMENTS IN LINE FOR ENORMOUS ROYALTIES ON JAPANESE MEMORIES

By CBR Staff Writer

Following its settlements with six of the nine chipmakers it sued for infringing its memory chip patents, Texas Instruments is in line for very substantial royalties. It will take a pre-tax gain of $108m with its first quarter figures to reflect the $134m fixed payments already made by the six – Oki Electric, Matsushita, Mitsubishi, Toshiba, Sharp and Fujitsu, and says per-unit royalties between now and 1990 could exceed the $134m figure. Suits are still out against NEC, Hitachi and Samsung.
