Pericom Expands Mobile Platform Connectivity Solutions 
New Switching and Power Management Products Target Thunderbolt, USB
and Video Protocols 
BEIJING -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/13 --   INTEL DEVELOPER FORUM (IDF)
-- Pericom Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: PSEM), a leading
supplier of serial high-speed connectivity, signal-conditioning and
timing solutions, today announced new switching and power management
products targeting advanced connectivity requirements of the latest
CPU chipsets for mobility and related applications. The new power
management products control platform voltage distribution with unique
features for mobile platforms, while the new switching products are
optimized for Thunderbolt, USB, and HDMI/DP(DisplayPort(TM))
switching applications. Pericom will display these new devices at the
IDF Intel Developer Forum, Beijing, PRC, April 10-11, 2013 at Booth
"Our newly announced switching and power management product solutions
are optimized with unique industry features that improve customer
platform performance," said Alex Hui, Pericom president and CEO. "We
continue to focus our product development on providing industry
leading features in our targeted mobility, server/storage, embedded,
and networking markets." 
The 2 new power management load switches sequence the voltage turn-on
in mobile platforms to help conserve battery drain. Pericom offers
industry unique linear slew rates which provide a smooth voltage
ramp, with the benefit of preserving battery life.  
The new 10.3Gbps Thunderbolt high speed switch is designed to
multiplex and de-multiplex the main Thunderbolt data paths into
individual signals from the graphics processor and route them to a
platform connector or end point. The switch includes two 10.3Gbps
full duplex data paths, can accept DP and HDMI signals, and offers
extremely low power and signal attenuation to preserve high speed
signal integrity and system performance. 
The 2 new HDMI/DP high speed switches can accept a very wide signal
range, which enables the platform's video stream to operate, even if
the external signal is less than optimum. The new USB signal switch
adds a unique feature that protects the CPU chipset from accidental
over-voltage damage via USB connector reversal or mishandling. 
Unit growth of Peri
com's targeted platforms show a healthy 56% 3 year
growth for TAB to 222Mu, and a strong 31% 3 year growth to 528Mu for
PC/NB (IDC, June 2012).
