ParkerVision (PRKR) Announces Sample Phones Tested and Accepted by Its Commercial Chipset Customer

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 26, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ParkerVision, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRKR) (“ParkerVision”) announced today that it has successfully delivered sample 3G mobile handsets incorporating its d2p radio frequency integrated circuits to its commercial chipset customer. The performance of these sample handsets was tested, verified and accepted by the chipset customer, a licensee of ParkerVision’s d2p and d2d(TM) technologies. The sample handsets were assembled for the purpose of verifying the d2p technology in working mobile handset implementations, testing the technology in actual network operation, and creating sales samples for handset OEM/ODMs who purchase chipsets from ParkerVision’s licensee.

The handsets met all relevant industry standards and passed a series of tests that verify operational performance of the hardware when deployed on mobile phone networks. The customer verified that the d2p transmit chain achieved power consumption savings at all points along the RF transmit power curve when compared against the mass produced transmit chain that d2p replaced in the mobile phone reference design. The customer also determined that the power savings achieved by the sample handsets incorporating the d2p technology exceeded their own internal expectations for the initial mass production run of d2p chips.

ParkerVision’s commercial chipset customer is a global supplier of chipsets that support 2G, 2.5G and 3G mobile standards with engineering design and sales locations in both North America and Asia. This customer designs and supplies chipsets and related handset reference designs, predominantly to ODMs, for incorporation into mobile handsets and reported three of the top five handset manufacturers among its customer base. The name of ParkerVision’s chipset customer remains confidential in accordance with the terms of their licensing agreement.
