U.K.-based TTP Communications plc has acquired full ownership of the 802.11 WLAN intellectual property developed by Cadence Design Systems Inc. TTP develops technology intellectual property used in the design and manufacture of wireless communication terminals and this acquisition enables TTP to offer the full range of 802.11 technologies to its customer base of silicon chip and terminal manufacturers.

Further, with Cadence's 802.11 IP, TTP gains a foundation on which to develop a WLAN business, thus being well positioned in taking advantage of the opportunities that are expected to arise for multimode technology IP solutions - 802.11 combined with GPRS, EDGE, or 3G. This combination has the potential to be included in a wide range of consumer and business devices such as laptops, PC chipsets, high-end handsets and PDAs.

TTPCom currently building a team to develop and fully support the 802.11 technology. John Haine, TTPCom's business manager for the new unit, said, "TTPCom now has access to WiFi approved and silicon proven designs that are fully interoperable with the installed base of 802.11 technology. TTPCom's 802.11 product line will include advanced low power modem designs for 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g. Enhancements that allow exciting new video applications based on 802.11e are well underway and security enhancements to comply with the draft 802.11i standard are complete."
