This new patent further bolsters NVEC's patent portfolio and helps ensure that NVEC's technology remains on the cutting edge. This will greatly increase the pressure on Freescale and others to agree to license NVEC's technology. If it doesn't, NVEC will have the power to shut its whole business down--so Freescale will have no choice but to pay a princely sum to NVEC to keep its MRAM division in business.
This could be a replay of what happened with Research in Motion, which had to pay billions of dollars (with a B) in order to keep its Blackberry business operating.
Press release is very well composed with a simple explanation for those that haven't a clue how it all works. That would be me. Too bad they couldn't work in a zinger for FSL or whatever they call themselves now.
