Patriot Scientific today announced that Research in Motion Limited (RIM) and The TPL Group, the company's partner who manages the marketing, licensing and defense of patents in the Moore Microprocessor Patent (MMP) Portfolio, have agreed to the terms of a patent license. Terms of the deal are not publicly available.

Patriot's President and CEO, Rick Goerner, said: "We are pleased to have another customer's validation of our ongoing licensing activities for the MMP Portfolio through TPL. Since the beginning of 2008, we have announced ten new licensees for the MMP Portfolio."

The wide scope of licensed applications using the MMP Portfolio design techniques continues to encourage global manufacturers of end user products to become MMP Portfolio licensees. More than 40 companies from the US, Europe, Japan, Korea and Taiwan have licensed the MMP Portfolio technologies, including many industry leaders such as Fujitsu, Hewlett Packard, Kenwood, Mattel, Nokia, Philips, Sony and Toshiba.

The MMP Portfolio patents utilize techniques that enable higher performance and lower cost designs and are fundamental to consumer and commercial digital systems. Today, there are dozens of microprocessor-based key features and benefits that are included in systems such as: DVD players, cell phones and portable music players to communications infrastructure, medical equipment, and automobiles.
