IDT Wins 2010 EDN Innovation Award for Highly Integrated PowerSmart™ Display Panel Controller

IDT Recognized for Integrated LCD Display Power Management, LED Driver, and Timing Controller Monolithic Mixed-Signal Device

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 3, 2011 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®; NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that the IDT VDAP1000 PowerSmart Display Panel Controller has won the prestigious EDN Innovation Award in the Application-Specific Standard Products (ASSP) category.  

          “We are honored to see our product win EDN Magazine’s Innovation Award. It is a clear demonstration of solid execution, commitment to innovation, and the success of our integration and power management strategy,” said Dr. Ted Tewksbury, president and chief executive officer at Integrated Device Technology. “The VDAP1000 is the first analog power management and LED backlighting chip to be fully integrated with a digital timing controller into a single device. IDT’s innovative power management capabilities coupled with a strong digital foundation put us in a unique position to solve complex system-level problems to benefit our customers.”

          IDT’s award-winning device, the VDAP1000, is the industry’s first monolithic mixed-signal total system solution for TFT LCD panels, such as those used in tablet PCs, notebooks, and netbooks. This innovative device from IDT integrates power management and a four-channel LED backlight driver with a full-function low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) timing controller.  Traditionally, these three functions were served by three different chips. The VDAP1000, however, integrates all three functions onto a single chip, saving precious board space, system power, and cost – enabling system architects to design the industry’s most compact and efficient portable devices. In addition, the IDT VDAP1000 features spread spectrum technology to reduce electromagnetic interference (EMI), improving signal integrity and system performance.

          The VDAP1000 EDN award complements the recent award from Electronic Engineering and Product World (EEPW) for IDT’s 90E2x family of wide-dynamic range power metering ICs. For more information on the VDAP1000, visit www.idt.com/go/PowerSmart.
