IDT and BAE Systems Win Electrons d’Or Award for Space-Grade Chip that Speeds Data Movement in Space

Contest Sponsor Electroniques Magazine Selected BAE Systems’ RADNET1848-PS, Which is Built Upon IDT RapidIO Technology, as Winner in the Military/Aerospace Category 

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 29, 2016 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI) announced today that a space-grade chip it developed with BAE Systems has won an Electroniques magazine Electrons d’Or Award for 2016. IDT’s RapidIO switch technology serves as the foundation for BAE Systems’ RADNET1848-PS radiation-hardened microchip, which won the award in the military/aerospace category.  The chip is designed to help speed the movement of massive amounts of data through a network of radiation-hardened computer systems in outer space.

“Our RapidIO switch technology has a strong foothold in the communications industry and, with its low latency and high scalability, RapidIO is increasingly being used in the most data-intensive applications, such as data centers and high-performance computing,” said Ron Jew, general manager in IDT’s Computing and Communications Division. “Our work with BAE Systems demonstrates that these chips can deliver this same value even within the challenging environmental conditions of outer space.”

 The awards ceremony took place in Paris on June 28.
