SRAM Direct Purchaser Antitrust Settlement

July 22, 2024
4:07-md-01819 US District Court, Northern District of California


This is a class action lawsuit that alleges violations of federal antitrust laws in connection with the sale of SRAM. Plaintiff claims that Defendants conspired to fix, raise, maintain or stabilize prices of SRAM. Plaintiff alleges that this conspiracy resulted in customers who purchased SRAM being overcharged. Plaintiff filed the lawsuit on behalf of itself, and on behalf of the class of customers who purchased SRAM in the United States directly from one or more of the Defendants or their subsidiaries or affiliates. Defendants have denied any liability and all allegations of misconduct.

What is SRAM?

SRAMs are memory chips used in a variety of applications, including consumer electronics products, such as cell phones, and computing products, such as workstations. For purposes of this lawsuit, SRAM includes high-speed or fast SRAM, low-power or slow SRAM, synchronous SRAM, asynchronous SRAM, and pseudoSRAM (“PSRAM”). Custom SRAM is not included in the class.


The class includes all persons and entities who, during the period November 1, 1996 through December 31, 2005, purchased non-custom SRAM in the United States directly from Defendants or any subsidiaries or affiliates thereof. Excluded from the class are Defendants, their parent companies, subsidiaries and affiliates, any co-conspirators, and all government entities.
