MOTOROLA FILES TDMA PATENT SUIT AGAINST INTERDIGITAL TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION

 LIBERTYVILLE, Ill., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Motorola (NYSE: MOT) has today filed suit in the Federal District Court in Delaware against InterDigital (formerly International Mobile Machines, IMM) of King of Prussia, Penn. Motorola has asked the court to declare that Motorola does not infringe certain of InterDigital's Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) patents and declare that those patents are invalid and unenforceable.
 Motorola firmly believes that the application of InterDigital's patents to digital cellular systems is without merit and believes that InterDigital's attempts to cast a cloud over the development of the digital cellular industry will prove ineffectual.
 "We have examined InterDigital's patents and will demonstrate that InterDigital was not the first to invent digital cellular," said Larry Conlee, vice president and general manager of Motorola's Pan American Cellular Subscriber Group. "Motorola has taken this action to lift the cloud over digital cellular for the benefit of the entire cellular industry."
 Motorola is a global leader in wireless communications and is one of the world's leading providers of wireless communications and electronic equipment systems, components and services for worldwide markets. Products include cellular telephones and systems, two-way radios, pagers, personal communications systems, semiconductors, defense and aerospace electronics, automotive and industrial electronics, computers, data communications and information processing and handling equipment. Sales in 1992 were $13.3 billion.
