Investments by Prism Venture Partners, Intel Communications Fund and Prior Investors to Help Increase Motia’s Leadership in Applying Effective Smart Antenna Technology To Wireless Systems

STAMFORD, CT – JUNE 21, 2004 – Motia, Inc., a fabless semiconductor company focused on enabling smart antennas with RFICs, today announced that it has closed its third round of funding, totaling $12 million. The round was led by Prism Venture Partners and also includes an investment from the Intel Communications Fund. All previous investors, including Axiom Venture Partners, Carrot Capital and Kodiak Venture Partners also participated in this round.

“The industry has come to realize that cost effective smart antenna silicon products are key enablers of superior quality wireless networks,” said Paul Sun, CEO and President of Motia, Inc. “Our customers believe in Motia’s standards-compliant smart antenna approach. With our Javelin™ Wi-Fi solution and our Cross Country ™ reference design for mobile, in-motion satellite TV, we are well-positioned to be the leading smart antenna RFIC solution provider.”

Motia’s standards-compliant Javelin semiconductor works with any existing baseband and RF chipset and easily integrates into customers’ existing products, giving vendors enhanced performance and up to four times more range in their Wi-Fi products. In addition to integrating Motia’s technology into existing 802.11x devices, Hawking is planning on incorporating Motia’s Javelin into its future 802.11x-based add-on devices that will enable users to increase the performance and range of their own systems, simply by plugging in an additional device.

Motia’s standards-compliant Javelin semiconductor works with any existing baseband and RF chipset, and easily integrates into customers’ existing products, providing vendors enhanced performance and up to four times more range in their Wi-Fi products. Javelin has been selected by market innovators such as Motorola and Hawking Technologies for integration into their existing and pending Wi-Fi products.

“Motia has delivered on the potential of smart antenna technology with its Wi-Fi and mobile video products,” added Robert Fleming, Founder and General Partner at Prism Venture Partners. “In addition, Motia’s technology and unique market positioning will enable the company to be an important smart antenna IC player across the wireless spectrum.”

Motia has also applied its smart antenna technologies to the mobile in-vehicle satellite television market through its Cross Country reference design. Delphi has used Motia’s smart antenna technology to demonstrate a compact antenna system that tracks a satellite signal from a moving automobile or truck.

“Smart antenna technology, like Motia’s, could play an important role in lowering service providers’ costs for installing WiMax wireless broadband services,” stated Scott Richardson, general manager of Intel’s Broadband Wireless Division. “With this technology, service providers would no longer need to send a truck to each subscriber’s home or office to set up the connection.”
