with their 1989 Delaware LLP, approaching IBM and others with what they characterized as an invention "ready for patenting".
They waited until 1990 when the hooks were baited to have Horowitz "take a sabbatical" to incorporate under Gary Harmon's wing so that Stanford's employee assignment clause could be skirted.
They didn't exactly mention Gasbarro's "midpoint clock" synchronization or "rising edge / falling edge" samplers or "register on the DRAM" or "PLL on the DRAM" since they were part of government funded research, a double no-no to smuggle out the back door. They had to rely on Gasbarro later to undo the "low skew between modules" on their RamBus in order to begin to devise the Rambuses of notable failure by providing for minimization of clock-data skew at individual instead.
They even tried to swear behind the SCI specification with the "brilliant" Farmwald claiming to have reduced his invention to constructive practice at MIPS who didn't really want a thing to do with the 1990 RamBus: it was a slow motion train wreck that unfolded over the course of twenty two years.
In dozens of continuations watching the industry and attempting to expand a very narrow, often useless, usually vague and non-specific disclosure to try to encompass anything and everything in a technology marketplace.
One Lumitex original patent disclosure becomes a family of 49 applications and more to come, just as the RamBus disclosure expanded to become more than 60 patent numbers with hundreds of bogus claims that they could spam a court with and try to flim-flam some money out of the public.
