IDT Wins Two Prestigious 2015 EDN China Innovation Awards
Recognized for Industry’s First Complete DDR4 LRDIMM Chipset and First IEEE 1588 Time and Frequency Generators Transparently Disciplined by SyncE
SAN JOSE, Calif., June 29, 2015— Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI) announced today that it has won two prestigious 2015 EDN China Innovation Awards. IDT’s DDR4 LRDIMM Chipset won in the Embedded Systems: Microcontrollers and Memory category and its family of Synchronization Management Units (SMUs) won in the Communication and Networking category.
“We’re honored to receive these prestigious awards recognizing IDT’s leadership in both memory interface solutions and advanced timing,” said Greg Waters, president and CEO at IDT. “The increase in mobile video and data consumption is driving significant change from the data centers, through the communications infrastructure, and out to the edge. IDT’s innovative products address the demanding requirements of new architectures and these awards are a testament to our success.”
The IDT 4RCD0124 registered clock driver (RCD) and 4DB0124 data buffer comprise a complete DDR4 chipset, providing full buffering of command, address, clock and data signals across an LRDIMM. By instantiating nine data buffers across the bottom of an LRDIMM with a single RCD in the center, up to 16 ranks of DRAM can be reduced to a single load (as presented to the host controller channel). This distributed approach minimizes stub lengths and physical skew between data bits, drastically improving the speed and bandwidth performance of LRDIMMs in multi-slot systems. This chipset is complemented by the TSE2004 temperature sensor.
The IDT 82P33810, 82P33814 and 82P33831 SMDs manage timing references, clock sources and timing paths for IEEE 1588 and Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) based clocks. The devices reduce the cost of IEEE 1588 clocks by replacing stable, but expensive, oven-controlled crystal oscillators (OCXOs) with low-cost temperature-compensated crystal oscillators (TCXOs) that are stabilized with frequency information from the SyncE physical layer. The process of stabilizing the TCXOs is automatic and transparent to the IEEE 1588 clock recovery software.
The winners of the 2015 EDN China Innovation Awards were announced on June 25, 2015 in Shanghai. For more information about IDT’s broad portfolio of products, visit www.IDT.com.
