Parthus To Unveil In8stream™ Platform At 802.11 Planet Conference In Philadelphia

San Jose, CA - June 11, 2002 - Parthus Technologies plc.
(Nasdaq: PRTH, LSE: PRH), a leading provider of platform-level
intellectual property targeting the mobile Internet, is unveiling its
ground breaking new In8Stream™ 802.11 IP platform at the Planet 802.11
conference in Philadelphia. Based upon PacketGenie™ technology, from
Telematix - a leading developer of multi-protocol wireless networking
technology. In8Stream™ offers advanced multi-mode wireless LAN (WLAN)
capabilities across the entire range of IEEE 802.11 WLAN standards b, a, g
and emerging standards including e, i and h through one flexible and
powerful architecture.

Parthus is leveraging from its position as number one supplier in the
Bluetooth IP licensing market (Dataquest) to target leadership in
licensing 802.11 IP solutions. This will be Parthus' first public
exhibition of the In8Stream™ demonstration, which runs a suite of
applications requiring high-speed wireless connectivity.

"The world of wireless local area networking for the home, office and
various public hotspot environments (such as airports, malls,
coffee-shops), as targeted by Parthus' 802.11 technology, is one of the
fastest growing segments of the communications industry," said Allen
Nogee, Senior Analyst of Wireless Technology with Cahners-in-Stat. "We
estimate that the number of 802.11 chipsets will grow rapidly from the 15
million to be shipped this year, to over 50 million shipping annually by

Fully IEEE 802.11 compliant, In8Stream™ incorporates a multi-mode b/a/g
MAC Hardware core, a complete software stack for station or access point
applications and 802.11a multi-protocol baseband core. The In8Stream™
architecture incorporates numerous differentiating features including:

The architecture substantially reduces memory and processor
costs which enables Parthus to deliver an IP platform with the lowest
cost of deployment in the industry

In8Stream™ has been architected around a programmable
communications processor, enables higher bandwidth versions of the
802.11standard to be easily accommodated

A mixed hardware and software architecture means emerging standards
such as 802.11i, e and h can be implemented in software without the need
for new silicon.

"Leveraging our extensive experience developing and deploying short
range wireless technologies, we are confident that our In8Stream™ Platform
will make a significant impact on the market," said Gerry Maguire, VP and
GM of Wireless Solutions Division, Parthus Technologies. "Parthus has
produced a world-class 802.11 solution for all current and emerging
standards. It means that our customers can benefit greatly from a highly
innovative architecture, which delivers the lowest cost of deployment in
the industry. In addition, licensees are also supported by an extensive
development environment and verification suite." added Maguire.

In8Stream holds a number of significant differentiators. When the
following features are combined they translate directly into a significant
reduction in costs for 802.11 products.

A comprehensive multi-mode architecture

Minimal on-chip memory requirements (In8Stream™ shares host
system memory and does not require external memory)

Reduced silicon die size (Parthus estimates In8Stream™ designs
are less than half the size of multi-protocol implementations)

The compact In8Stream™ architecture also delivers superior
energy consumption performance over alternative solutions, making the
platform particularly well suited for battery operated devices like
PDAs, laptops and hand-held computers.

About 802.11

802.11 is a family of specifications for wireless local area networks
(WLANs) developed by a working group of the Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers (IEEE). There are currently three specifications in
the family: 802.11, 802.11a and 802.11b. The most recently proposed
standard, 802.11g (which will be added late this year), offers wireless
transmission in the 2.4 GHz ISM band at data rates up to 54 megabits per
second (Mbps) compared with the 11 megabits per second of the 802.11b

About Bluetooth

Bluetooth is rapidly becoming the de facto standard for wireless
communication between a range of personal electronic devices such as
mobile phones, handheld devices, PC peripherals, automotive, home and
industrial appliances. By eliminating the need for cables between
inter-connecting devices, individuals can share voice and data using
broadband and secure local wireless connections. By 2005, Cahners In-Stat
forecasts that Bluetooth technology will be used in almost 780 million
devices, ranging from mobile phones and desktop computers to digital
cameras and automobiles.

About PacketGenie™

Telematix Corporation has developed a unique packet processing
technology called PacketGenie™, which has been optimized for
multi-protocol wireless networking applications. PacketGenie™ along with
an accompanying software stack provides a flexible multi-protocol MAC and
baseband implementation, which can be configured to work with all planned
variants of the 802.11 standard. PacketGenie™ based designs are up to 75%
smaller in silicon die-size and consume a fraction of the power of
traditional DSP- and CPU- based implementations. More information is
