Two leading chipmakers have been targeted as part of a US investigation into alleged Static Ram (SRam) price fixing.
The investigation is unrelated to a previous DRam price-fixing scandal in which Samsung was alleged to have been one of three manufacturers involved in a scheme to inflate the price of DRam.
Samsung agreed at the time to pay a $300m fine, and several employees faced criminal charges.
Earlier this year, seven memory manufacturers were sued by a group of 34 states in the US for price fixing. Neither Samsung nor Cypress was named in that case.
