The jury has reached a verdict in an antitrust case brought by Rambus against Micron and Hynix<000660.KS>, according to a court spokeswoman.

The verdict, expected to be read in court later on Wednesday, would come after a three-month trial in state court and after more than eight weeks of jury deliberations.

Rambus attorneys argued that South Korea's Hynix and Idaho-based Micron colluded to fix prices of memory chips used in personal computers and prevent Rambus's technology from becoming widely used. Rambus claimed it lost billions of dollars in business.

Micron and Hynix, which may appeal a possible verdict against them, countered that Rambus's chip technology was plagued by technical problems and that the company blames competitors for its own failure.
