IDT Combines Flexibility and Performance with New Programmable Universal Output Fanout Buffers

The Latest Members of IDT’s Industry-Leading Timing Portfolio Deliver Cost Savings by Enabling Customers to Deploy a Single Device Across Systems

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 21, 2015— Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI) today announced the expansion of its leading portfolios of programmable timing devices with the introduction of the 5P11xx family of low-jitter universal output fanout buffers. The devices provide high performance with just 200 fsec of additive jitter, while offering greater flexibility to design engineers.

The flexible outputs allow engineers to use a single device to meet the requirements of systems utilizing multiple signal types, which can translate to reduced costs and space savings by reducing the number of required components. The device family can accept any level clock input and generate any level output. Users can specify the signal type and voltage of each output on the buffer, meaning a single device can, for example, supply LVPECL on one output, LVDS on another, and LVCMOS on a third.

The high-performance devices are well suited for a wide array of applications, including products for high-end consumer, networking, computing, industrial, communications and broadcast video.

“Our new family of universal output fanout buffers delivers extremely low jitter and enables our customers to use a single buffer device to deliver the different output types needed to meet the requirements of SoCs and FPGAs,” said Dave Shepard, vice president and general manager of IDT’s timing and RF division. “By adding these new capabilities to IDT’s timing portfolio, our customers can reduce their bill of materials by utilizing one buffer device with multiple boards and applications.”

With the IDT 5P11xx family of buffers, clock outputs can be individually programmed as LVDS, LVPECL, HCSL or two LVCMOS outputs per output pair, with a crystal, LVCMOS, or differential input. The chips enable four universal output pairs, as well as a reference LVCMOS output clock. Output frequencies range from 1MHz to 200MHz for LVCMOS and 1MHz to 350MHz for differential outputs. Output voltage can be individually selected (1.8V, 2.5V or 3.3V) for each output pair. The 5P1103  has two universal outputs and an LVCMOS output; the 5P1105  has four universal outputs and an LVCMOS output.

Today’s announcement comes a month after IDT introduced a family of ultra-low-jitter LVCMOS fanout buffers, which deliver best-in-class performance in an extremely small 2 millimeter-by-2 millimeter package.
