IDT Captures Two Spots on EDN Magazine's List of “Hot 100 Products of 2011” for its Innovative Mixed-signal Solutions

World’s First Portable Audio Subsystem with Integrated Programmable Clock Generator and Industry’s First Monolithic Solution for Timing, Thermal Sensor and Fan Control Selected for Honor

SAN JOSE, Calif., November 21, 2011 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®; NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that two IDT mixed-signal product families were included in the prestigious list of EDN magazine’s Hot 100 Products, a list created by and for electronics engineers. The IDT 9TCS108x, an integrated timing and thermal management solution that reduces BOM and application footprint, was recognized in the Hot 100 sensor category.  The IDT ACS42200, the world’s first portable audio subsystem with integrated programmable clock generator that eliminates the need for multiple external crystals and oscillators, was recognized in the analog category.

          EDN praised the honorees in a special report published in its November 8, 2011 issue for representing “the best of the best – the products and technologies that in 2011 really grabbed the attention of our editors and our readers.”

          “We are honored to be included among EDN’s influential list of Hot 100 products, as it validates our commitment to mixed-signal technology and timing leadership,” said Arman Naghavi, vice president and general manager of the Analog and Power Division at IDT. “We will continue to take a system-level approach to develop highly integrated solutions that bring value to our customers’ applications.”

          The IDT 9TCS108x devices integrate a low-power system timing solution, a two-channel thermal sensor, and a four-wire pulse width modulation (PWM) fan controller on a single chip, targeted for use in mobile PC platforms, digital video recorders (DVRs), set top boxes (STBs), Network Attached Storage (NAS), and enterprise Ethernet switches and routers. The low-power PLL design extends battery life in portable devices, while the multiple clock outputs of the device can replace on-board crystals to reduce physical size and weight.

          The IDT ACS42200 family includes a low-power, high-fidelity codec targeted at portable applications such as tablet computers, portable games, personal navigation devices, portable projectors and speaker docks. The device also integrates four programmable system PLLs for internal and external timing, a DDX™ class-D speaker amplifier, a true cap-less headphone amplifier, and advanced built-in audio processing capability for 3-D, bass and treble enhancement. Like the IDT 9TCS108x devices, the IDT ACS422200 family minimizes board space and reduces system cost through integration, and provides time-to-market advantages by eliminating the need for multiple external crystals and oscillators that typically involve long lead times.
