AMIMON Raises $15 Million for WHDI Silicon

AMIMON, a start-up with operations in Herzlia, Israel and Santa Clara, California, raised $15 million in new venture financing for its Wireless Home Digital Interface (WHDI) semiconductor solutions.



AMIMON WHDI chipsets are compliant with the WHDI standard. The WHDI standard delivers the highest image quality for in-room and multi-room HD wireless connections, including uncompressed 1080p/60Hz HD video. WHDI utilizes a 40MHz channel in the 5GHz unlicensed band and can be implemented with a single antenna for minimal footprint. WHDI includes support for all 3D formats required by the HDMI 1.4a specification and range of over 100 feet (30 meters) through obstacles and walls. WHDI supports HDCP revision 2.0, providing superior security and digital content protection, and full compatibility with HDMI.



AMIMON said it is ramping up production to deliver WHDI chipsets to multiple OEMs and CE manufacturers. Numerous companies are developing products (wireless HDTVs, PC-to-TV, tablet-to-TV, HD Wireless Bridges, etc.) based on AMIMON's WHDI chipsets.



AMIMON's WHDI technology could also be designed into mobile devices, enabling users to wirelessly view device content on their TVs with excellent user experience. Additionally, WHDI has virtually no latency (less than one millisecond); users will be able to experience interactive applications and gaming capabilities of their mobiles devices and tablets on the "big screen."



The new funding comes from a blend of new and strategic investors together with existing investors.http://www.amimon.com
