Dear valued Customers,

Microsoft® Corporation has announced that they will end their support of the Windows® 8.1 operating system on
January 10, 2023, at which point, security updates, fixes and technical support will no longer be provided by
Microsoft.

Accordingly, Sony Semiconductor Solutions (SSS) will no longer be able to assist with any new technical, quality or
security issues with our products if they relate to Windows 8.1, and we will not be able to provide security updates
or implement modifications and validations on our products running on Windows 8.1. As such, please be aware that
these products may not work properly or securely if you continue using them with Windows 8.1.

Certain products are compatible with newer versions of the Windows operating system. Please refer to the
respective Start Guides to confirm the operating environment when using our hardware and software products
in a new OS environment.

Note: SSS cannot support new technical, quality or security issues with our products caused by use with earlier
