JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ParkerVision, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRKR) a developer and marketer of semiconductor technology solutions for wireless applications, today announced that it was ranked among the Top 20 companies in the telecom and communications industry according to an analysis conducted by The Patent Board, which appeared in the July 15, 2013 edition of The Wall Street Journal.

The Patent Board's tri-annual Patent Scorecard analyzes telecom and wireless industry companies based on six objective criteria. According to the most recent Patent Scorecard analysis, ParkerVision was the only company to rank first in three separate categories.

Parkervision has been ranked number one in two or more of The Patent Board's criteria for each of the last seven reporting periods among industry leaders such as Qualcomm, AT&T, Samsung Group, Google, and Cisco Systems.

"Throughout ParkerVision's history, we have taken great pride in our team's unique approach to the development of significant advancements for wireless solutions," said ParkerVision Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Parker. "This type of recognition from an objective, respected group such as The Patent Board is not only a tremendous honor, but further validation of our commitment to innovation."

"Based on our extensive review of ParkerVision's patent portfolio, we believe it represents some of the most fundamental and powerful innovations we've ever seen," said Kevin Rivette, managing partner of 3LP Advisors, a leading intellectual property advisory firm and an advisor to ParkerVision. "Their IP portfolio is unique in both its breadth and the depth of coverage.
