Network Systems Design Conference, San JOSE, Calif., October 18, 2005 – IDT(Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; Nasdaq:  IDTI), a leading provider of network search engines (NSEs), today announced an NSE market milestone by surpassing seven million units shipped of its high-performance network search engines. 


The IDT family of NSEs is optimized for accelerating packet processing in enterprise switches and core/edge routers allowing increased usage capacity for enterprise, wireless and carrier-class networks.  Continuing in its leadership role, IDT is also announcing a new NSE-related partnership with Ample Communications and Bay Microsystems (see related news releases, also issued today). 


“This shipment milestone is further proof that IDT is the partner of choice for reliably delivering this innovative technology to market,” said Scott Sarnikowski, vice president and general manager, IDT IP co-processor division.  “IDT leads the NSE market by providing the broadest range of best-in-class technology for high-performance packet processing.  With a firm understanding of next-generation application requirements, and a rich ecosystem of software and partners, we now turn our attention to paving the way for the emergence of tomorrow’s networks.” 


Since announcing its first NSE in 2001, IDT has achieved several other milestones along the way enabling the company to maintain its market leadership position.  In particular, IDT is the first NSE vendor to:


·         Speed time to market, increase system performance and lower overall development costs in its pioneering efforts to offer complete ecosystem support, including a comprehensive suite of hardware and software development tools. 

·         Accelerate Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) and enable value-added services in 10-gigabit per second (Gbps) applications with next-generation NSE solutions.

·         Improve data integrity and address soft errors in high-reliability networking equipment with integrated error correction code (ECC) feature.

·         Deliver complete development solutions that reduce design time and lower system costs in a broad range of communications equipment, by way of strategically aligning itself with leading packet processing silicon vendors.


“Satisfying the increasing consumer demand for converged network services drives the focus of networking equipment manufacturers today. To deliver the products demanded by their service provider and enterprise customers, equipment OEMs must focus not only on these new advanced features, but also the critical issues of manageability, scalability, and reliability needed to take the network to the next level," said Deb Mielke, managing director of Treillage Network Strategies, Inc.   "Manufacturers must partner with semiconductor solutions providers to accelerate their efforts to deliver cost competitive, new and innovative networking equipment.  IDT is one of those rare silicon companies combining innovation with a strong history of leadership in delivering product when it counts.”


Additionally, IDT has made available a white paper discussing the NSE market.  To access the white paper, obtain additional information on the IDT family of NSEs or the IDT partnerships with Ample Communications and Bay Microsystems, visit www.IDT.com.
