June 28, 2011 -- MIPS Technologies, Inc. today announced that WHDI founding member AMIMON, Ltd. has licensed the MIPS32 M4K processor core for development of its third-generation transmitter and receiver chips designed for the WHDI (Wireless Home Digital Interface) standard.

AMIMON is a long-time MIPS licensee, having leveraged MIPS cores for its previous-generation WHDI products. Numerous companies are developing products based on AMIMON's MIPS-based chipsets, which wirelessly deliver full uncompressed 1080p/60Hz HD video and audio content throughout the entire home, with no need for cables or installations.

AMIMON's chips connect wirelessly between a broad range of video transmitting devices — including set-top boxes, PCs, game consoles and cameras — and display devices such as HDTVs. AMIMON's WHDI technology connects any mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones, to the TV to let users wirelessly mirror content from their mobile devices and TVs. The technology has low power consumption for long battery life, and less than 1ms of latency aimed at providing an excellent user experience in interactive real-time applications and games.

"The MIPS32 M4K core has a compact-footprint, low-latency and low-power design that is ideal for our continued expansion in mobile products such as smartphones and tablets," said Dr. Zvi Reznic, CTO of AMIMON. "We built our product line on top of the MIPS architecture, with multiple products from leading TV manufacturers already in the market. Production is ramping quickly with multiple OEMs and CE manufacturers for our second-generation MIPS-based WHDI chipsets, and we are continuing our partnership with MIPS for future generations."

"AMIMON's products are a perfect example of the convergence we are seeing across consumer electronics markets. Consumers today want to experience high-definition content on any screen, at any time, anywhere at home. With its innovative WHDI technology, AMIMON is enabling users to experience HD content seamlessly across their devices. As more and more content travels across networks, the ability to deliver HD content with a wireless link that has the same functionality, cost and quality as a wired link, is a compelling value proposition," said Art Swift, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, MIPS Technologies.

About WHDI
