The Company’s Development of Innovative RF Chips Began in 2009 with Just 3 Engineers

March 17, 2015

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 17, 2015-- Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI) announced today that it has surpassed the 10 million shipments milestone of radio frequency (RF) devices, less than 4 years after entering the market. Since beginning RF development in 2009, IDT has advanced wireless infrastructure technology with a stream of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)-enhancing innovations for leading RF developers.

"The wireless infrastructure market acceptance of IDT's RFIC products is clear given this significant milestone, and the expansion of the product portfolio over the past four years,” said Earl Lum, president of EJL Wireless Research LLC.

“Our RF division was started from the ground up with a team of just three people less than six years ago, and the market’s response has been remarkable,” said Dave Shepard, vice president and general manager of IDT’s Timing & RF Division. “By targeting the needs of 4G base stations and other high-performance applications, we clearly found a segment that was being underserved.”

IDT has a broad lineup of RF products including DSAs, switches, mixers, modulators, demodulators, VVAs, VGAs, and integrated receivers. These products offer a combination of extreme linearity and very low power consumption. In addition to wireless infrastructure, IDT's RF innovations can be found in such diverse industrial applications as commercial radar, point-to-point backhaul, and public safety networks.
