SAN JOSE, Calif. -- January 24, 2013

Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT^®) (NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and
Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions,
today announced the industry’s first high-performance quad frequency MEMS
oscillators with multiple synchronous outputs. IDT’s latest oscillators offer
configurable outputs in an industry-standard compatible package footprint,
saving board area and bill-of-materials (BOM) cost in communication,
networking, storage, industrial, and FPGA applications.

The IDT 4E series ±50ppm enhanced MEMS oscillators integrate an LVDS or
LVPECL output with a synchronous CMOS output into a single package,
eliminating the need for an external crystal or secondary oscillator.
Available in frequencies up to 600MHz, the new oscillators save board area,
simplify the application circuit, and reduce BOM cost in any high-performance
application requiring an LVDS or LVPECL frequency source. Additionally, the
oscillators feature two control pins to select between four
factory-programmable output frequencies, allowing for the replacement of four
components with a single device. This enables the customer to reduce their BOM
count, consolidate their inventory, and realize cost benefits.

“Our new CrystalFree™ MEMS oscillators eliminate the need for additional
quartz crystals and bring tremendous value to our customers,” said Christian
Kermarrec, vice president and general manager of the timing and
synchronization division at IDT. “Our new 4E series provides our customers
with what they’ve been asking for – simplicity and cost savings. Not only have
we met these demands, we’ve also maintained backward compatibility with their
existing socket footprints to ease the transition to these new devices.”

The IDT 4E series oscillators are designed with the physical dimensions and
pinout of an industry-standard six-pin CMOS, LVDS or LVPECL oscillator, but
with four additional pins (10 pins total) strategically placed to maintain
backward compatibility with existing six-pin sockets. This allows designers to
use the oscillators in existing sockets while offering additional
functionality for new designs.

System designers can choose from three different output combinations: LVDS and
CMOS outputs, LVPECL and CMOS outputs, or three synchronous CMOS outputs –
offering the flexibility to use the innovative devices in a myriad of

Pricing and Availability

The IDT 4E MEMS oscillators are currently sampling to qualified customers and
are available in a standard 7.0 x 5.0 mm VFQFPN package. Most standard
frequencies are readily available. Custom frequencies can be configured by
request. For more information, visit
