IDT MEMS Oscillators Selected as Finalist for 2013 EE Times and EDN ACE Awards

IDT’s Leading 4M and 4E MEMS Oscillators and CEO Ted Tewksbury, Ph.D. Garner Recognition from Prestigious Electronics Industry Publications

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 21, 2013 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that its 4M- and 4E-series MEMS Oscillators were selected as a finalist for UBM Tech’s EE Times and EDN 2013 Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Award in the ‘Ultimate Products’ category. In addition, IDT’s president and CEO, Dr. Ted Tewksbury, Ph.D., was named finalist in the Executive of the Year category.

          IDT’s 4M and 4E MEMS oscillators were selected for their broad appeal to electronics engineers looking to overcome the performance and reliability concerns that have accompanied quartz-based oscillators for decades. IDT’s patented piezoelectric MEMS (pMEMS™) resonator technology combines the strong electromechanical coupling of the piezoelectric material with the stability and low damping of single-crystal silicon to create a passive frequency source of unparalleled performance and reliability. The devices are ideal for cloud computing and network infrastructure requiring sub-picosecond jitter and high reliability at elevated operating temperatures.

          “This year’s ACE Awards finalists mark a shift in the industry, as the electronics industry becomes more focused on creating technologies attractive to consumers,” said Alexander Wolfe, Brand Director, EE Times. “The 2013 finalists represent the execution of forward-thinking technologies and creativity that captures the imagination of consumers, illustrating the influence that electronics and embedded design professionals have on today’s culture.”

           “IDT’s MEMS oscillators meet the accuracy and jitter requirements for high-performance applications with the added benefit of excellent reliability and short lead times,” said Christian Kermarrec, vice president and general manager of the Timing and Synchronization Division at IDT. “Our MEMS oscillator portfolio includes a range of products optimized for different applications; from standard six-pin oscillators with less than 1 picosecond of phase jitter to our multi-output oscillators with pre-configured selectable frequencies on a single chip. Our ICs empower customers to drive the performance standard for next generation products while consolidating the BOM and simplifying the circuit.”

          In addition to becoming a finalist for the ‘Ultimate Product’ award, IDT’s very own president and CEO, Dr. Ted Tewksbury, Ph.D., was named finalist for the Executive of the Year category.

          The ACE Awards celebrate the creators of technology who demonstrate leadership and innovation in the global industry and shape the world we live in. These creators, and their innovations, will be recognized at the EE Times and EDN ACE Awards ceremony on April 23, 2013.
