CAMARILLO, Calif. -- April 09, 2013

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and
mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced six new 6G ultra-high
definition-SDI (UHD-SDI) components. These 6G UHD-SDI parts allow the industry
to build systems to transport higher resolution television formats - both
UHDTV and 4k digital cinema.

These new parts provide twice the density, half the power and outstanding
performance all at a substantially lower cost than competitive 3Gb/s
multi-link components. Semtech is working closely with key broadcast equipment
manufacturers such as Evertz, a leading maker of products that encompass all
aspects of broadcast production, which is now using 6G UHD-SDI components.

Semtech’s Gennum Product Group will be showcasing its latest 6G UHD-SDI
solutions at the National Association of Broadcasters show in Las Vegas in
booth #N2116, at their invitation-only VIP suite. Evertz is also at NAB in
booth #N1503.

Semtech is announcing the GS6042 adaptive cable equalizer; the GS6080 and
GS6081 cable drivers and the GS6050, GS6051 and GS6052 reclockers. With this
comprehensive family of 6G UHD-SDI components, customers are in a position to
design UHD-SDI capable products today. Semtech’s customers at NAB will be
launching a multitude of different products enabled by Semtech‘s 6G UHD-SDI
technology.

“Semtech has a history of innovating in the video market. We are focused on
providing solutions to address the challenges presented by UHDTV and 4k. We
have worked with several key customers to ensure these products meet the
demanding market requirements and are pleased to work with Evertz to address
its next-generation product needs,” said Gary Beauchamp, Senior Vice President
& General Manager, Gennum Product Group.

Eric Fankhauser, Evertz Vice President Advanced Product Development said, “We
are always looking for the latest technology to incorporate into our products.
Semtech’s 6G UHD-SDI components allow us to solve our technical challenges.”

The new 6Gb/s products from Semtech are pin-compatible to prior Semtech 3Gb/s
products allowing customers an easy transition to higher data rates. Key
Semtech personnel will be on hand at the NAB show to discuss details around
specific product launch timing, pricing and detailed features.
