Santa Clara, Calif. — April 25, 2007 — AMIMON, INC., an emerging leader in semiconductor technology for wireless transmission of high-definition (HD) video, today announced Dr. David Lee’s appointment as a member of its board of directors.

“I have been examining various wireless HDTV technologies and have found WHDI to be the only one to meet the stringent requirements of the CE industry,” said Dr. Lee. “WHDI is gaining strong industry support as the technology of choice for wirelessly connecting video sources to displays.”

“During his career, Dr. Lee has had the keen ability to understand industry needs long before the rest of the market,” said Dr. Yoav Nissan-Cohen, AMIMON chairman and CEO. “Dr. Lee will contribute invaluable expertise and strengthen AMIMON’s drive to establish WHDI as an industry standard.”
