When The Chips Are Down

Sony Corporation's US subsidiary, Sony Electronics Inc. stated in a corporate press release to investors here that they had "received a subpoena from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Antitrust Division seeking information about its static random access memory (SRAM) business." The company stated that it intended to cooperate with the government in its investigation.

Martin Fackler of the NYTimes reports here some background on this investigation including how four other companies have come under investigation related to SRAM business. SRAM stands for Static Random Access Memory. (See Wikepdia here)

The Wall Street Jrl reports on the raid of offices of Samsung in Germany by EU Investigators. (see here)  This investigation also appears to be related to SRAM chips.
