IDT PanelPort™ ViewXpand™ Selected For EDN Magazine's “Hot 100 Products of 2009”

DisplayPort™-Based Solution Enables Multi-Monitor Functionality for Business and Consumer Applications Such as Finance, Gaming and Graphic Design
San JOSE, Calif., January 6, 2010 IDT® (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; NASDAQ: IDTI), a leading provider of essential mixed signal semiconductor solutions that enrich the digital media experience, today announced that it was included in the prestigious list of EDN magazine’s Hot 100 Products, a list built by and for electronics engineers. The IDT DisplayPort™ compatible, PanelPort™ ViewXpand™ solution, was one of three Graphics/Graphics-Interface ICs recognized by the publication’s readership and editorial staff as a hot product for 2009. EDN praised the honorees in a special report published in the publication’s December 15, 2009 issue for representing “the best of the best—the products and technologies that in 2009 really grabbed the attention of our editors and our readers.
“To choose the 2009 lineup of the EDN Hot 100, EDN’s editors examined thousands of new products across 16 product categories,” said Rick Nelson, EDN editor-in-chief. “The IDT VMM 1300 PanelPort ViewXpand chip was one of the outstanding product introductions in our Graphics/Graphics-Interface ICs category,” he added.
The IDT PanelPort™ ViewXpand™ solution can be placed within a notebook, on a docking station, in a stand-alone dongle or on DisplayPort-compatible monitors, allowing original design manufacturers the flexibility to customize the multi-monitor experience for their customers.  The plug-and-play configuration of the IDT PanelPort™ ViewXpand™ solution allows end users to enjoy multiple monitors from a single digital output port for each application, such as gaming, graphics design or spreadsheet analysis. And/or, users can choose to dedicate each monitor to a separate application.  Moreover, the IDT ViewXpand device is fully HD compatible and provides full display performance with zero latency and no display application limitations. The ViewXpand solution does not require any system software updates or any Windows Hardware Quality Lab (WHQL) testing/qualification, which provides ease of use for end consumers and faster time-to-market for OEMs.
            “We are honored to be included among EDN magazine’s influential listing of Hot 100 Products as this validates our commitment to developing technologies that help enhance the digital media experience,” said Ji Park, vice president and general manager of the IDT Video Display Operation. “We look forward to continuing to develop PanelPort solutions as a part of our broader strategy to serve the on-going, behind the panel needs of this very exciting market.”
