Terocelo Awarded Self-Tuning Transmitter Patent

Monday, July 09, 2007

Patent Award Protects Key Innovation for Frequency Agility of Lycon™ Chips

Van Nuys, CA -- Terocelo Inc. announced today that it has been awarded a patent for its Self-Tuning Output Digital Filter for Direct Conversion Delta-Sigma Transmitter by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The patent number is 7,236,112. This patent protects a key innovation of the company’s transmitter chip design, which eliminates a number of discrete, inflexible components required by other wireless transmitters. The invention is already implemented in the company’s Lycon™ family of chips. The Lycon™ chips contain the company’s patented True Software Radio® technology and make it possible for wireless communications devices to reconfigure automatically solely by software programming.

Commenting on the new patent, Antonio Turgeon, Chairman of Terocelo, said: "Communication devices, including cell phones, cordless phones, ham radios, citizens band radios, family radios, general mobile radios, multiple use radios, pagers, wireless (WiFi, cellular) computer adapters, wireless PDAs, network and multi-media appliance adapters, GPS trackers, and others, are typically limited to communications on a specific frequency band. The communications industry is looking for a way to create multi-mode wireless devices, based upon a system-on-a-chip that can handle multiple frequency bands, understand multiple transmission protocols, be reconfigured on the fly, and be easily upgraded. With the convergence of audio, video, data processing and communications services in wireless appliances, True Software Radio® offers reconfigurable wireless platform architectures for both computing and communications devices. More importantly, we believe our patent filings and our continuing technology development programs establish the company as one of the preeminent leaders in the communications technology evolution, which is an ever expanding, multi billion dollar marketplace."

Ron Hickling, Chief Technology Officer of the company stated: "The development of wideband front end receivers and transmitters is key to achieving frequency agility and realizing the ultimate goal of software radio transceivers. This is a critical component of our direct conversion transmission core technology. We know of no other digital filter that can operate continuously across different frequency bands or that automatically adjusts to the proper frequency when transmitting wireless (RF) signals. This circuit does both."

This invention is a key part of Terocelo’s True Software Radio®, a wireless transmitter/receiver-on-a-chip technology that operates continuously across different frequency bands, controlled entirely by software. While this patent application is another in a series of patents covering the company’s Lycon™ family of chips and its True Software Radio® (TSR™) technologies, it is applicable to a broad range of communications devices for both wired and wireless environments. The company’s patent filings are the result of a continuing series of major advancements being developed by the company for the wireless industry. With True Software Radio®, the flexibility to communicate with and among incompatible cell phones, PDAs, laptop computers, and any other wireless device can be practically limitless.

About Terocelo Inc.

TechnoConcepts Inc. (OTCBB: TCPS)(Frankfurt: UYE.F) does business as Terocelo Inc. Terocelo is in the business of designing, developing, licensing and marketing technology focused in the communications marketplace. Terocelo is positioned in the high-growth, wireless communication market, having developed breakthrough, disruptive technologies. These technologies can be integrated into many high-volume commercial markets, including cell phone, automotive, base station, Femto/Pico Cell, and First Responder markets.

The company has developed and patented True Software Radio®, a proprietary technology that creates convergence for the wireless industry. True Software Radio® has produced the Lycon™ family of wireless transmitter-receiver chipsets, designed to enable cell phones, PDAs, laptops, and infrastructure with different radio frequencies, standards, and protocols to adjust by software command so that they can communicate across otherwise incompatible networks, without the need for multiple radios. Lycon™ chipsets replace the front end, I/F processing, ADC, and digital filtering sections of radios. Because the technology simplifies design and reduces component costs, the company believes that Lycon™ and True Software Radio® are ideal platforms for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) to develop new wireless broadband, mobile data, cellular, and other next-generation wireless applications.
