The Commission ordered the institution of this investigation on April 18, 2000, based on a complaint filed by Rambus Inc. of Mountain View, California. The notice of investigation was published in the Federal Register on April 24, 2000. 65 Fed. Reg. 21790 (2000). The complaint named four respondents: Hitachi, Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan; Hitachi Semiconductor (America), Inc., of San Jose, California (collectively, “Hitachi”); Sega Enterprises, Ltd., of Tokyo, Japan; and Sega of America, Inc., of San Francisco, California (collectively, “Sega”).

On June 29, 2000, complainant Rambus and the Hitachi respondents filed a joint motion to terminate the investigation by settlement. Also on June 29, 2000, complainant Rambus filed a motion to withdraw the complaint and terminate the investigation as to the Sega respondents. On July 10, 2000, the Commission investigation attorney filed responses in support of each motion. The Sega respondents filed no response to either motion. On July 12, 2000, the presiding ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 11) granting both motions. No party petitioned for review of the ID.

The authority for the Commission's determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in section 210.42 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 C.F.R. 210.42).
