TEMPE, Ariz., May 30 // - Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT)
today announced the industry's first design win based on the MicroTCA(TM)
specification for communications computing applications. High security
electronic transaction solutions provider Hypercom Corporation (NYSE: HYC),
will integrate Motorola's Centellis(TM) 1000 series communications server into
Hypercom transaction network products that will be used to transport
point-of-sale (POS) transactions globally. The use of the Centellis 1000
series for the high security transport of electronic payments marks a new
application for the MicroTCA standard, expanding its value beyond the original
target markets.

"Current industry trends indicate that MicroTCA has growing interest in
multiple industry segments in addition to telecom," said Paul Zorfass,
director of the Embedded Hardware and Systems practice at VDC. "This
announcement demonstrates that the MicroTCA standard, while at an early stage,
is mature enough for real design win activity. It shows the Motorola
commitment and leadership in this high potential computing, communications,
and control platform market."

"Motorola's Centellis 1000 series will help us accelerate the delivery of
our high security network transaction products to new global markets by
providing an advanced and system oriented platform as the foundation for next
generation POS networking products," said Neil P. Hudd, Senior Vice President,
Global Product Development and Marketing at Hypercom. "Our products already
support more than 500 leading financial institutions, government institutions
and large networks in 109 countries, and integrating Motorola's Centellis 1000
series will help us quickly broaden that footprint."

"Motorola has been a driving force in building the infrastructure to make
MicroTCA technology market-ready for the telecom, medical, defense and other
industries," said Stephen Dow, vice president and general manager, Embedded
Communications Computing, Motorola, Inc. "Hypercom's pioneering use of
MicroTCA in point-of-sale network products demonstrates its broad
applicability to applications beyond the industries for which it was initially

"As such, we believe this design win will help accelerate the adoption of
the MicroTCA standard by encouraging other customers to begin their own
projects based on this powerful new technology."
