Given Imaging to Launch Advanced PillCam™ SB Video Capsule

Yoqneam, Israel; Boise, Idaho; Ottawa, Canada - Given Imaging, Ltd. , Micron Technology and Zarlink Semiconductor announced that they are finalizing development of a third generation PillCam SB™ for the small bowel. The new capsule is expected to be commercially available in 2006.

Doubling the frame rate from two to four frames (images) per second, the new PillCam SB will offer enhanced viewing capacity while increasing the capsule’s operational time from eight to nine hours and incorporate new optical and image sensor technology to provide superior image quality. Coupled with Given Imaging’s latest RAPID software platform, the new PillCam SB capsule is designed to provide the physician with more detailed and extensive information to improve diagnostic efficacy as well as user friendliness and efficiency.

Micron’s complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors and Zarlink’s ultra low-power RF (radio frequency) transmitter chips are used in Given’s PillCam SB video capsule and PillCam™ ESO for imaging the esophagus as well as the future PillCam COLON, which is currently in clinical trials.

“Since inception, Given Imaging has built a strong track record of advancing our line of patient-friendly, PillCam capsule endoscopes by incorporating Micron Technology’s latest generation CMOS process technology as well as Zarlink’s cutting-edge low power and wireless technologies. Our commitment to responding to the needs of our customers through continuous innovation will continue in 2006 and beyond,” said Gavriel Meron, President and CEO of Given Imaging.

“Micron’s Digital Clarity™ CMOS sensors have set a standard for imaging excellence,” stated Bob Gove, Vice President of Imaging for Micron Technology, Inc. “Through our close collaboration with Given, we are enabling the PillCam SB to take yet another step forward in disposable medical imaging.”

“Our custom solution for Given’s product range is indicative of how Zarlink’s ultra low-power and wireless technologies are proving indispensable for the healthcare and communications markets,” said Steve Swift, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Ultra Low-Power Communications, Zarlink Semiconductor.
