IDT Introduces the Industry's Widest-Range, Small-Footprint Spread Spectrum Clock Generators
SAN JOSE, Calif., June 29, 2011 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®; NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that it has released a new family of low-power spread spectrum clock generators that support the industry’s widest frequency range in a tiny 2x2mm package. The wide frequency range and compact package make the device highly versatile and unobtrusive, allowing users to address EMI challenges in a variety of applications including digital TVs, set-top boxes, printers, industrial control, battery powered electronics, and computer or embedded computing systems.
The IDT 5P5090x family of devices support spread spectrum clocking frequencies from 10MHz to 170MHz with seven selectable modulation amplitudes and operate with a supply voltage down to 1.8V for reduced power consumption. The device is available in a low-cost, minuscule 2x2mm 8-pin DFN or MSOP package, minimizing the board area required for placement, a critical requirement for today’s compact consumer products. The wide frequency range and small package make it a smart choice for new designs as a preventative measure against excessive EMI output and also convenient for existing designs as an indispensable solution when EMI tests have failed to meet stringent requirements – all without sacrificing valuable board space.
“Our latest spread spectrum clock generators reinforce IDT’s #1 leadership position in clocks and timing solutions,” said Ram Iyer, vice president and general manager of the Computing and Multimedia Division at IDT. “The wide frequency range, selectable modulation amplitudes, and small package are exactly what our customers have been asking for. In addition, we’ve lowered the power consumption to offer one of the industry’s most efficient products. EMI can be a simple problem to solve with the right products, and IDT’s rich portfolio contains devices aimed at addressing EMI challenges.”
The IDT 5P5090x family is the next generation of IDT’s leading MK17xx family devices. The lower power consumption (1.8V supply) and smaller package (2x2mm) make this an obvious upgrade path for new designs. These products are one of thousands of IDT world-class timing products, and complement IDT’s broad portfolio of products for consumer and computing applications where EMI compliance is critical.
Pricing and Availability
The IDT 5P5090x family of products is currently sampling to qualified customers and the devices are available in a 2x2mm DFN or MSOP package. The IDT 5P5090x is priced at $0.87 each for volumes of 10,000 units. For more information, please visit www.idt.com/go/SpreadClocks.
