ParkerVision Expands Product Portfolio With Introduction of Three New RFICs

Company Continues to Deliver Best-in-Class Performance and Power Consumption

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ParkerVision, Inc.
(Nasdaq:PRKR), a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions
for wireless applications, today announced the introduction of three new Radio
Frequency Integrated Circuits ("RFICs") that address a variety of wireless
applications.

The Company's new RF solutions are targeted at challenging applications that
require high dynamic range performance such as 3G CDMA/EVDO and 4G LTE devices
and systems. The new additions to the ParkerVision product portfolio include:

  *The PVD2510R RF I/Q Demodulator: A quadrature down-converter based on
    ParkerVision's RF energy sampling down-conversion technology;
  *The PVL2520R Low Noise Amplifier (LNA): A dual-band LNA that integrates
    gain and power management; and
  *The PVM2520XP Dual-Band CDMA/EVDO RF Chipset: A power efficient complete
    RF chipset that incorporates ParkerVision's d2p™ transmit technology and
    includes all system functions between the CDMA/EVDO baseband processor and
    the duplexer.

While ParkerVision's PVM2520XP is targeted for CDMA and EVDO mobile devices
such as smartphones, tablets and other devices, the PVD2510R and PVL2520R also
serve general purpose applications such as commercial and industrial radios,
military radios, femtocells, picocells and other custom applications.

"We are proud to launch these new products, which deliver high performance
with exceptionally low power consumption,"said Jeffrey Parker CEO of
ParkerVision. "These additions to our product portfolio expand the target
customer base of wireless product manufacturers that can improve upon their RF
systems using our RF receive and transmit technologies. Moreover, the
introduction of these new RFIC products further strengthens our product
offering, and we believe that this expanded suite of solutions will bring
additional sales opportunities to the Company as we approach a larger and more
diverse audience of potential customers."

Performance and battery life are paramount concerns in wireless devices, as
the industry strives to meet the ever-increasing performance demands of
wireless data networks.ParkerVision's patented, advanced RF technologies
enable these complex devices to maintain superior RF performance while
optimizing battery life and reducing unwanted heat, which translates into
better reliability and longer usage between charges for mobile devices, and
better connectivity and fewer dropped calls for wireless networks.

ParkerVision's PVD2510R Demodulator delivers the highest dynamic range and
linearity in its class with an IIP3 of +15dBm and an IIP2 of +72dBm at 882
MHz, while operating at an ultra-low power consumption of less than 47mW.

The Company's PVL2520R LNA also delivers best-in-class linearity with an IIP3
in high-gain mode of +15dBm and +25dBm in bypass mode, while operating at an
ultra-low power consumption of less than 23mW.

The PVM2520XP is an expansion of the current PVM2510XP product that offers
dual-band operation and provides frequency coverage for the vast majority of
CDMA mobile phone and tablet applications worldwide.
