SAN JOSE, Calif. -- June 20, 2013

Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT^®) (NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and
Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions,
today announced a low-noise timing chipset optimized for use in wireless base
transceiver station (BTS) radio cards. The new chipset complements IDT’s
extensive communication signal chain portfolio, offering engineers the tools
needed to solve phase noise-related challenges and build cutting-edge wireless
systems.

The IDT 8V19N4xx chipset is a flexible JESD204B-compliant radio frequency
phase-locked loop (RF PLL) and clock synthesizer, designed to meet both the
high frequency and low phase noise requirements for 2G, 3G and 4G LTE wireless
infrastructure. Leveraging IDT’s proven FemtoClock^® NG technology, the low
phase noise characteristics enable the system’s analog-to-digital and
digital-to-analog converters (ADCs / DACs) to function with high precision and
very low distortion levels. This results in improved signal integrity on
transmission and enhanced signal sensitivity on reception, increasing data
throughput via lower bit error rates (BER). Furthermore, reduced noise in the
RF signal path enables base-station developers to decrease cost and complexity
by relaxing the system’s filter requirements.

“At IDT, we recognize the undesired effects noise can cause in the RF signal
chain, and have developed this timing chipset to provide system engineers a
new tool to address it,” said Christian Kermarrec, vice president and general
manager of the Timing and Synchronization Division at IDT. “Our new chipset
also offers several key features, such as JESD-compliant clocking and
integrated clock jitter attenuation for easy integration into our customers'
specific architectures. The new timing devices complement our industry-leading
timing portfolio as well as our performance-leading data converters, data
compression, RapidIO^®, and RF signal chain products for wireless
infrastructure applications.”

The IDT 8V19N4xx chipset generates synchronized and highly configurable clock
and SYSREF signals as required by JESD204B applications. This allows customers
to use a standard, cost-effective timing chipset with a high degree of
flexibility instead of multiple PLLs, synthesizers, and buffers. In addition,
the devices feature integrated clock jitter attenuation to simplify system
design, and support a low-cost, low-frequency external VCXO to reduce system
cost.

Product Availability

The IDT 8V19N4xx devices are currently sampling to qualified customers and are
available in standard VFQFPN packages. The RF PLL and high-frequency
synthesizer can be paired with other devices for added flexibility in the
application. For more information about IDT’s leading clock ICs and timing
