2006 Samsung's German offices were raided as part of a European Union probe into suspected price-fixing of SRAM chips. SRAM chips, unlike DRAM memory chips, retain the contents of their memory as long as power remains applied, and are also faster than DRAM chips. They are used for fast memory access, for example in the central processing units of computers.     Reuters
