ParkerVision Files New Complaints Against MediaTek and Realtek for Patent Infringement

JACKSONVILLE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / May 18, 2023 / ParkerVision, Inc. (OTCQB:PRKR) announced today that it has filed additional actions in the Western District of Texas against Taiwanese global fabless semiconductor companies, MediaTek Incorporated ("MediaTek") and Realtek Semiconductor Corp. ("Realtek"), for the infringement of four of its U.S. patents. These new complaints are in addition to the actions filed against both MediaTek and Realtek in November 2022 alleging infringement of four different ParkerVision U.S. patents.

The complaints request jury trials to determine, among other items, the financial damages for the unauthorized use of ParkerVision's wireless patented technologies in semiconductor chips used in Smartphones, WiFi and Bluetooth devices.

To date, ParkerVision has resolved patent infringement actions filed in the Western District of Texas against Japanese wireless networking company Buffalo, Inc., Taiwanese wireless networking company Zyxel Communications Corporation, Chinese SmartTV company Hisense Co. Ltd. and affiliates, and most recently U.S.-based Intel Corporation.

ParkerVision CEO Jeffrey Parker commented, "We encourage MediaTek and Realtek, as significant global suppliers of wireless semiconductor chips, to license ParkerVision's patented technologies. We believe our innovations enable features that they currently enjoy in their wireless products resulting in lower product cost, higher performance, smaller size, and less power consumption, all which make for more competitive products in WiFi, Bluetooth, and Smartphones."

ParkerVision has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in R&D and marketing in its patented RF receiver, transmitter, and RF power transmitter technologies to enable ultra-small semiconductor chips to deliver high performance RF wireless communications for mobile telephone standards such as 3G, 4G, and 5G standards, WiFi communications, Bluetooth, Satellite communications and other wireless applications.
