innoCOMM wireless Moves from Design to Production House to Capitalize on Strong Market Growth.
SAN DIEGO, Calif., August 22, 2000 - innoCOMM wireless, previously a leading design house in Radio Frequency (RF) and Mixed Signal technologies announced today that it has made a smooth transition into the fabless community. As a design house over the last two years, innoCOMM wireless has gained valuable experience and knowledge during a period of extremely high market growth. The start-up company now specialises in the design and production of chipsets in wireless PC and high-level home and office applications, applying its proven expertise to high specification wireless solutions. The transition to production house comes at a time when RF and Mixed Signal design expertise is in extreme short supply throughout the industry.
"We have been designing and helping to manufacture chips for many customers for years. Given that background we have decided to follow the product route ourselves and feel we have a lot to contribute to the wireless communications market," stated Bernard Xavier, president and CEO, innoCOMM wireless. "We have some new and improved radio receiver architectures, higher performance integrated circuits and high levels of integration which have been derived from our previous experience," said Xavier.
Working with a leading IC Manufacturer, innoCOMM wireless recently completed the CDMA 1900/900 Downconverter, a 900MHz/2MHz dual band LNA/Attenuator/Mixer. InnoCOMM wireless also retains ownership rights to chipsets for Cordless Phone, Studio Quality Video Broadcast for Enhanced Definition TV, Active DNA Sensor, Smart Toy and RGB Driver Display.
Xavier added, "Cost and time-to-market issues are not a new phenomenon. Specialising in this market, we have both the talent and technology to challenge those limitations head on. With this in mind, moving from a design house into the product space allows us to significantly strengthen our position in the wireless market."
InnoCOMM wireless are set to build on an already solid foundation with development activity continuing which will result in the release of both Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and Bluetooth solutions. "The next twelve months will see a lot of our development turn to product. The industry as a whole is set for a very interesting and exciting year," commented Xavier. "InnoCOMM wireless doesn't just want to be part of it. With our solutions we want to lead it from innovation to production."
