"WiSA Endorsed" designation coincides with the launch of the
industry's first WiSA Endorsed Amplifier from Infineon Technologies

WiSA
LLC, WiSA, the (Wireless Speaker and Audio) Association, an industry
group comprised of over 40 leading brands including founding member
Summit Wireless Technologies (NASDAQ:WISA), introduces "WiSA Endorsed™"
for audio amplifiers designed for use in today's powered home audio
speakers. This new designation coincides with the launch of member brand
Infineon Technologies (OTCQX:IFNNY) MERUS™ MA12070 4-26V
ultra-efficient audio amplifier which is the first amplifier to receive
the endorsement. Amplifier solutions with the WiSA Endorsed designation
will be designed into a complete powered speaker solution that has
passed WiSA Certification. These WiSA Endorsed amplifiers can then be
designed into products by audio brands and manufacturers with confidence
as they pursue WiSA certification.

"We are proud to announce the MERUS amplifier solution from WiSA member,
Infineon Technologies, as the first WiSA Endorsed amplifier," said Tony
Ostrom, president of WiSA. "This program will be instrumental in driving
our mission forward by helping simplify the process of developing WiSA
Certified™ products with an array of readily available WiSA Endorsed
components."

The WiSA Endorsed MERUS MA12070 IC is powered by Infineon's
ultra-efficient switching amplifier multi-level technology. Operating
from a fixed power supply voltage, the amplifier drastically reduces
power losses at normal audio listening levels and provides outstanding
audio quality. The MA12070 also eliminates the need for an external LC
output filter with most applications.

"We are very excited that our innovative integrated multi-level
amplifier ICs are being recognized for their exceptional audio quality,"
said Jens Tybo Jensen, Head of Marketing and Application Engineering for
Class D Audio at Infineon. "It is a great honor to be the first company
to receive the WiSA Endorsed designation, and we are proud of this
recognition by WiSA as we are aware that this is an important quality
stamp for an increasing range of audio manufacturers around the world."

The WiSA Association and its members are committed to revolutionizing
the home entertainment experience by delivering wireless, uncompressed,
high-definition, multichannel sound according to the universal standards
established and certified by the WiSA Association.
