IDT’s High-performance, Compact, and Flexible Universal Frequency Translator (UFT™) Timing Solution Captures Prestigious ACE Award Presented by UBM Tech’s EE Times and EDN
SAN JOSE, Calif., April 2, 2014 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that it received a 2014 Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Award in the ‘Ultimate Products’ category for the 8T49N28x Universal Frequency Translator (UFT) clocking family. The award was presented by UBM Tech’s EE Times and EDN, two prestigious industry publications.
“We are excited to receive a 2014 ACE Award for our industry-leading UFT timing solutions,” said Greg Waters, president and CEO at IDT. “As the leader in silicon timing, we provide a clear competitive advantage to our customers with our technical innovation and support tools. Offering eight programmable outputs and RMS phase jitter of less than 300 femtoseconds (fs), IDT’s UFT family is a powerful and flexible solution enabling the rapid deployment of complex, high-performance clock trees.”
IDT’s 8T49N28x UFT family is the industry’s first single-chip programmable solution capable of generating eight different output frequencies with less than 300 fs RMS phase jitter over the standard 12kHz to 20MHz integration range. The devices offer independently-programmable clocking outputs with the flexibility to apply virtually any input frequency and select virtually any output frequency. The high level of integration and low jitter eliminates the need for separate jitter attenuation, frequency translation, and redundancy management – empowering engineers to save cost and board area through consolidation. These devices are ideal for high-performance optical networks, wireless base stations and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) interface applications.
Fully supported by IDT’s Timing Commander™ GUI (graphical user interface), the 8T49N28x family can be easily programmed to meet the system’s requirements without sifting through register tables in the datasheet. Additional GUI-based controls, calculations, and status monitors allow the user to experiment with and fine-tune the configuration. IDT’s Timing Commander software and 8T49N28x product configuration files can be downloaded online at www.idt.com/go/TimingCommander.
The IDT 8T49N281i, 8T49N282i, 8T49N283i are production-released and shipping in volume today. The 8T49N281i and 8T49N283i are available in a 56-lead 8 x 8 mm VFQFPN package, and the 8T49N282i is available in a 72-lead 10 x 10 mm VFQFPN package.
