InterDigital Completes Successful Initial Evaluation Tests of Baseband ASIC

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—December 13, 2007— InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDCC) today announced that it reached a major milestone in the market launch of its baseband ASIC and platform with successful initial evaluation tests of the ASIC with a leading mobile device manufacturer. Integrated onto an ExpressCard 34, the 2G/3G baseband ASIC delivered true wireless broadband performance in on-air testing. Over the next weeks and months, InterDigital will continue trials with additional suppliers of mobile solutions around the world.

The InterDigital high performance dual mode baseband ASIC and protocol stack are optimized for data-centric devices such as PC Cards or embedded wireless broadband products. The ASIC features standards-compliant 2G and 3G modes with HSDPA and HSUPA technology - delivering data speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps in the downlink and 1.5 Mbps in the uplink. InterDigital's advanced receiver with receive diversity assures superior interference mitigation, resulting in high data speeds and coverage, especially at the cell-edge. The power-efficient ASIC uses innovative hardware accelerators, voltage islands and clock gating techniques, giving users maximum battery life.

"Such good results from the initial evaluation put our ASIC on track for broader customer sampling in early 2008," commented Mike Regensburg, Vice President of Product Management. "The performance achieved during these tests confirmed what we have seen in our own labs and on commercial 3G networks with our ASIC passing a range of customer-specific tests."

To accelerate the adoption of its baseband ASIC, InterDigital provides complete data card reference designs with fully-integrated third party components, software and documentation. In addition, support for integration, verification, certification and testing are provided to customers, who also receive the advantage of InterDigital's extensive pre-certification and interoperability testing.

The company is now accepting requests for customer sampling and operator trials in early 2008.
