None of the directors is related to any other director or to any executive officer of our company. The Board of Directors has determined that Messrs. Jackson, Millard, Nawaz, Priesmeyer and Williams, who constitute a majority of the Board of Directors, are independent as defined in the applicable listing standards of the Nasdaq Stock Market (Nasdaq). In making the independence determinations, our Board of Directors considered the following relationship: Mr. Nawaz, who has served as a director of our company since October 2006, is Executive Vice President of Spansion Inc.s Wireless Solutions Division. During fiscal 2007 Digi purchased an aggregate of $58,836 of Spansion components exclusively through independent third party distributors in the ordinary course of business. Mr. Nawazs responsibilities at Spansion are unrelated to sales of products to distributors.
