IDT Power Expert Shares Insight into Evolving Power Management Trends in Portable Electronics

December 1, 2010
SAN JOSE, Calif., December 1, 2010 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®; NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that it has been selected to deliver an online presentation at Power Electronics Technology: One Powerful Day, Online Conference. The online conference takes place on Tuesday, December 7th, 2010.
Siamak Bastami, IDT’s Portable Power Director, will present “Battery-Based Portable System Design,” at 1 p.m. PT during the online conference. The session will discuss power management trends in the portable electronics market where system designs are moving away from fixed, inflexible, discrete solutions toward programmable, flexible, system-on-a-chip (SOC) solutions. This trend has been well-received by system designers who are under increasing pressure to deliver innovative solutions within a relentlessly shrinking development window.
“Consumer electronics development cycles in the portable market are typically three to nine months. This means that power management solutions must be readily available and capable to satisfy the immediate needs of the system,” said Arman Naghavi, vice president and general manager of the Analog and Power Division at IDT. “IDT’s highly-programmable, mixed signal, intelligent power management ICs address this issue by giving system designers a compact, flexible solution they can program at their lab benches. This allows our customers to meet their specific needs at the time of development, without delay.”
In support of these new design trends, IDT recently launched the IDT P95020, a highly integrated microcontroller-based Intelligent System Power Management Solution designed for portable consumer products, such as Smartphones, mobile Internet devices, eBooks, and portable navigation devices. This device features an embedded microcontroller for unparalleled flexibility and programmability of its rich feature set. This monolithic device features a Li+/Polymer battery charger, backlight LED driver, best-in-class high-fidelity audio subsystem, multi-channel DC-to-DC converters, a high resolution analog-to-digital converter (ADC), clock generation, and resistive touch controller. The IDT P95020 is a prime example of a highly-programmable, flexible, integrated solution that will allow system designers to shorten their development cycles.
