Industry’s Only Single-chip Programmable Solutions Capable of Generating Eight Different Output Frequencies with Less Than 300 Femtoseconds Jitter Selected for Honor  

November 26, 2013

SAN JOSE, Calif., November 26, 2013 – Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that its third-generation universal frequency translator (UFT) devices were included in EDN’s prestigious Hot 100 products list in the Analog product category. The UFT devices are the industry’s only single-chip programmable solutions capable of generating eight different output frequencies with less than 300 femtoseconds RMS phase jitter over the standard 12kHz to 20MHz integration range, making them ideally suited for high-performance optical networks, wireless base stations and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) interface applications.

          EDN’s Hot 100 products list is created by and for electronics engineers. EDN praised the honorees in a special report published in its November 19, 2013 issue for representing “the best of the best – the products and technologies that in 2013 really grabbed the attention of our editors and our readers.”

          “We are honored that our UFT family is included in EDN’s influential Hot 100 list, as it reinforces our position as the world leader in timing solutions,” said Christian Kermarrec, vice president and general manager of the Timing and Synchronization Division at IDT. “Our latest UFT products offer a highly-integrated and flexible timing solution that meets or exceed the high-performance requirements of next-generation wireless and wireline networking applications. We’ve already gained significant customer traction within only few months of launching this product family, demonstrating the value it brings to the marketplace.”  

          The IDT 8T49N28x devices can be configured as either a frequency translator or synthesizer and are available with one or two PLLs in a single package, depending on the needs of the application. The devices accept up to four input reference clocks per PLL from 8 kHz to 875 MHz in a frequency translator configuration, switching between them as necessary to generate any output frequency from 8 kHz to 1.0 GHz. When configured as a frequency synthesizer, a low-cost, readily available 10MHz to 40MHz crystal can be utilized to produce any frequency from 8 kHz to 1.0 GHz, regardless of the crystal frequency used. Each output is individually programmable as LVPECL, LVDS or as a pair of LVCMOS signals.
