SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- MIPS Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MIPS), a leading provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for digital home, networking and mobile applications, announced that WHDITM founding member AMIMON, the market leader in wireless High Definition, 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 enable users to wirelessly mirror content from their mobile device and the TV. The technology has low power consumption for long battery life, and less than one millisecond of latency aimed at providing an excellent user experience in interactive real-time applications and games.

“AMIMON’s WHDI technology is fast becoming the method of choice for wirelessly mirroring HD content from mobile devices and DTVs,” said Dr. Zvi Reznic, CTO of AMIMON. “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. We built our successful 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 pleased to continue our partnership with MIPS for future generations.”
