BRISTOL, England, July 14 --

- Fourth Successive Quarter of Growth for Private Wireless Semiconductor

Icera Inc., the wireless soft modem company, today announced that it closed its
fourth successive quarter of revenue growth at the end of June 2009.
Icera’s chipsets and firmware are being shipped in the next generation of
high performance USB modem sticks and embedded MiniCard modules for notebook and
netbook computers.

Stan Boland, President CEO of Icera Inc., said: ’Mobile Network
Operators are driving revenue growth of around 40% pa in high-speed mobile
broadband services, even in mature markets, and achieving even higher rates in
developing countries, generating strong demand for high performance user
devices. As end-user demand grows, Icera’s chipsets and firmware are being
increasingly specified by MNOs for these devices since they offer the highest
user throughput rates at attractive cost points, an ideal combination in
today’s markets.’

Boland continued: ’In the second quarter, we exclusively provided the
chipsets and firmware for the world’s first 10.2Mbps HSPA commercial
launches in two European markets, delivering a welcome 40% increase in user data
rates. Unlike all other conventional approaches, Icera’s soft modem
chipset has now been upgraded through software and will support the first global
14Mbps service launches in the next few months. A further software upgrade later
in 2009 will extend our chipset performance to the higher data rates set out in
the Release 7 (HSPA+) version of the global 3G standards in line with
MNOs’ roll out plans.’

Icera’s technology is now shipping on 9 networks across Europe, US, Latin
America and Asia. Its customers are designing multiple HSPA USB sticks, PCI
Express MiniCards and modules and Icera is optimistic of achieving continued
strong growth looking ahead.
