Integration of IDT’s IEEE 1588 software and timing components and Cavium’s SoC families provides precise synchronization for a growing range of applications.

December 18, 2017

San Jose, CA – December 18, 2017 – Integrated Device Technology (NASDAQ: IDT) today announced that the company will offer integrated IEEE 1588 software and timing components for a variety of Cavium System on Chip (SoC) solutions.

The range of applications requiring precision synchronization over packet-switched networks using the IEEE 1588 protocol continues to expand, with requirements becoming even tighter.  Once primarily found in mobile networks and industrial automation applications, demand is growing in data centers, broadcast video, high-speed trading and high-performance computing for this key technology.

“IDT’s advanced clock recovery algorithms and precision timing devices reconstruct accurate synchronization signals under challenging network conditions for the most demanding applications,” said Kris Rausch, vice president of IDT’s Timing Division. “We understand that many of the markets for Cavium silicon require these types of synchronization solutions. Our thorough integration and testing across Cavium’s product lines allow customers to proceed with confidence in the turnkey, cost-effective reference designs.”

“Cavium’s network infrastructure solutions have a particular need for precision timing, whether base stations, remote radio heads or even Cloud-RAN,” said Raj Singh, general manager of Cavium’s Wireless Broadband Group. “As we begin the transition from 4G to 5G it will become even more critical. Giving our customers access to reference designs incorporating validated IDT timing technology is an important element in helping them quickly deliver end products to the market.”
