Patent Portfolios

ParkerVision's patent portfolios are key assets for the company.

ParkerVision's extensive and rapidly expanding portfolios of United States and International patents cover many of the pioneering concepts of energy sampling receivers and modulators and high efficiency power transmitters including their methods, applications and implementations.

Our patent portfolios address the creation of energy sampling technologies, applying matched filter concepts to achieve the highest sensitivity, dynamic range and modulation flexibility. A similarly extensive portfolio of patents cover multimode power transmitter technologies that provides very low energy consumption, longer battery life and reduced heat.

ParkerVision's growing portfolios empower our licensees to build value-added multimode power-transceiver SOCs and RF modem systems based on our technologies.
