IDT Expands Industry-Leading Portfolio of Low-Jitter VCSO Solutions for High-Performance Optical Networking and Telecom Applications

IDT’s Timing Products Meet Stringent Jitter Requirements of Demanding 40G and 100G Architectures for Next Generation Cloud Computing and 4G Wireless Infrastructure

SAN JOSE, Calif., August 25, 2011 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®; NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced the addition of a low-jitter Voltage Controlled Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Oscillator (VCSO) for high-end optical networking and telecom applications. The new VCSO clock generator expands IDT’s industry-leading portfolio of clock and timing solutions.

        The IDT M690SDM low-jitter, low-noise oscillator incorporates an analog frequency multiplier and single-ended RF output with jitter at less than 270 femtoseconds root mean square (rms) integrated across the 20kHz to 20MHz frequency band. It is available with an output frequency in the 1.5GHz to 2.1GHz range, providing customers a high frequency reference clock with low-jitter, low-noise performance. The IDT M690SDM’s performance specifications meet the low bit error ratio (BER) requirements for today’s high speed 40G and 100G board designs used in telecommunications and optical networking applications, helping to drive the development of next generation cloud computing and 4G wireless infrastructure.

         “The IDT M690SDM expands our industry-leading timing portfolio by leveraging our core competencies, such as high-performance radio frequency (RF) integrated circuits, SAW technology and discrete RF/microwave design,” said Fred Zust, vice president and general manager of the Communications Division at IDT. “By combining these areas of expertise, IDT provides high-performance, feature-rich solutions that easily meet the ultra-low phase noise and jitter requirements of our customers in the telecom and optical networking markets.”

         In addition to addressing the performance requirements of its target applications, the IDT M690SDM provides +10dBm output power. For many designs, this eliminates the need to use an additional amplifier, simplifying the overall bill of materials. The device is offered in a compact surface mount technology (SMT) package to minimize its footprint and save board area in densely populated enclosures.

Pricing and Availability
The IDT M690SDM is currently sampling to qualified customers. It is available in a 13x20mm FR4 printed circuit board (PCB) with grounded metal cover to minimize system Electromagnetic Interference (EMI). The IDT M690SDM is priced at $85.00 each for volumes of 10,000 units. For more information, please visit
