Idaho Settles with Micron, Five Others for Alleged Price-fixing


Idaho is one of 33 states participating in a $173 million price-fixing settlement with a half dozen manufacturers of Dynamic Random Access Memory. Micron, NEC, Infineon, Hynix, Elpda and Mosel-Vietelic all manufacture DRAM, a computer chip used in personal computers, servers and workstations.

According to Idaho's Attorney General's office, the six manufacturers were accused of fixing DRAM prices. The manufacturers did not admit any violations. The amount to be distributed to Idaho consumers and businesses will be determined later.
