SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Zyray Wireless, a San Diego based early stage company developing the SPINNERTM family of wireless semiconductor products, announced today that they have extended their relationship with Infineon Technologies, building upon their prior collaboration to provide a dual mode (GSM/EGPRS + WCDMA) handset solution. The two companies demonstrated the FP-1U dual mode handset reference design at the 3GSM World Congress in Cannes, February 2003.

The latest agreement, which builds upon their successful development partnership, now extends to include joint sales and marketing of complete handset solutions based on FP-1U, with a view towards securing multiple customer commitments. In addition, both companies are also working closely to complete additional Interoperability Testing (IOT) that will ensure the delivery of a robust and proven WCDMA solution. As the companies prepare to unveil their combined product offering, which will be commercially available in 2004, their increased collaboration provides the foundation for a strong customer proposition.

"We welcome the enhancement of our relationship with Infineon and look forward to building upon our success at 3GSM by securing key customer commitments," said Thom Degnan, Senior VP of Sales at Zyray Wireless. Having the commitment of Infineon as one of our key partners further validates our SPINNERTM co-processor solution, which efficiently and cost effectively enables single mode WCDMA, dual mode and multi mode (GSM/GPRS/EGPRS + WCDMA) products."

"Infineon Technologies is well positioned to accelerate market adoption of 3G by offering a cost-optimized solution at the right time," said Dominik Bilo, Chief Marketing Officer of the Infineon Technologies Secure Mobile Solutions Business Group. "This solution builds upon Infineon's proven 2G and 2.5G platforms and enables OEM's and ODM's to launch UMTS products quickly as an evolution of 2G products rather than developing a UMTS product from scratch. We look forward to taking the next steps together with Zyray as we work directly with handset customers."
