(Nasdaq NMS: PRKR), announced today that DataVision, a leading New York-based electronics retailer and web-based e-tailer (http://www.datavis.com/index.jsp), will sell ParkerVision's SignalMAX
wireless networking products. ParkerVision's SignalMAX products consist of four-port wireless routers, notebook cards, and USB adapters and are compatible with all 802.11b/g networks. SignalMAX products, based on ParkerVision's proprietary D2D
wireless RF technology, are targeted at consumers seeking maximum wireless coverage and distance connectivity for their cable and DSL modems in homes and small offices, and will greatly improve distance and eliminate "dead-zones" even when used with other manufacturers' gear. ParkerVision guarantees that SignalMAX notebook or desktop cards used in conjunction with SignalMAX routers will provide wireless coverage of an entire home without the need or cost of repeaters, boosters, or special high-gain antennas.
"Our products continue to generate interest from the high-quality electronics retailers who want to give their customers the choice to buy the best WiFi technology available on the market today," said ParkerVision's Jeffrey L. Parker, Chairman and CEO. "We look forward to the opportunity to enhance the home, office, and mobile WiFi experience for DataVision's customers, and further demonstrate the value of our underlying digital RF technology that we believe will replace the analog RF circuits that exist in the marketplace today. Our premium line of wireless networking products guarantees longer distances, less interference, and higher performance than those of any other consumer brands currently available."
ParkerVision, Inc., headquartered in Jacksonville, with additional facilities in Orlando, Florida, designs, develops and manufactures complete semiconductor system solutions for wireless products based on the enabling, patented D2D
technology. D2D, which is applicable to all wireless applications, utilizes digital radio circuitry that eliminates the negative attributes inherent to products that use legacy analog processes.
