SAN JOSE, Calif. -- June 24, 2013

Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT^®) (NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and
Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions,
today announced that it has developed and validated an intelligent, scalable,
and distributed power management solution for Intel^® Atom™ processors,
Intel^® Xeon^® processors and Intel^® Core™ processors. IDT’s innovative power
management solution is designed to meet the cross-platform power requirements
of various Intel-based applications with a single power management IC (PMIC).
IDT’s patented solution has been system-level validated to support these
processor families.

The IDTP9145 is a scalable, programmable, multi-channel PMIC specifically
designed to support the power management requirements of Intel Atom
processor-based SoCs. Unlike traditional solutions that require a different
PMIC for different power requirements, the highly-versatile IDTP9145 leverages
IDT’s intelligent, scalable, distributed power sources (IDTP9147), enabling
system designers to add phases and output current to the internal DC/DC
regulator as needed by the application. This feature minimizes development
risk and offers tremendous flexibility for point-of-load regulation, circuit
board routing, and thermal distribution.

“We are excited to announce the development and validation of our patented
power management solution for Intel^® processor-based platforms,” said Arman
Naghavi, vice president and general manager of the Analog and Power Division
at IDT. “The IDTP9145 PMIC offers industry-first design features, giving
customers a means to configure, re-configure, and scale their power management
solution to support evolving power requirements across multiple product
platforms. The highly versatile solution services a wide-range of market
segments, spanning from micro-servers and embedded markets, to consumer
electronics, including tablets and netbooks.”

“Solutions like IDT’s help deliver an innovative and comprehensive power
solution with the versatility to support Intel^® processor-based platforms in
a wide range of applications, such as print imaging, digital signage and
medical devices,” said Ken Caviasca, general manager with Intel’s (NASDAQ:
INTC) Intelligent Systems Group. “In addition, IDT’s solution has undergone
system-level validation and demonstrated its ability to support varying
processor power requirements with a single PMIC.”

The IDTP9145 PMIC is a complete power management solution that includes: five
step-down DC/DC regulators (20A total peak current), seven LDOs, a 10-bit
ADC, multiple GPIOs, and a high-speed I2C interface. IDT’s patent-pending
architecture offers seamless transitions between modes of operation to ensure
high-efficiency for different power loads. In addition, the solution provides
a high degree of configurability through one-time-programmable (OTP) memory
that can be programmed prior to shipment. This enables customers to set custom
default power sequences and configurations without the high-speed I2C

The IDTP9147 companion distributed power sources are controlled by the
IDTP9145 PMIC, allowing designers to command up to eight external devices as
though they were integrated into the main PMIC itself. Each optional device
provides up to 6 A of additional peak current, for a total of 48A of
scalability in addition to the IDTP9145's 20A of integrated capability. The
distributed nature of the devices distributes heat across the board and
greatly simplifies PCB routing and stack-up requirements near the PMIC – an
area that is often a challenge to design. In addition, the transient voltages
and currents of the additional phases are contained to the power sources’
immediate areas, helping to avoid inductive interference and minimize EMI.

Differing from Driver-MOSFET (DrMOS) solutions, IDT’s solution leverages a
proprietary two-wire interface with no sensitive analog feedback traces or
individual pulse width modulation (PWM) line connections, thus minimizing the
number of PCB traces and avoiding potential signal coupling issues. In
addition, automatic signal integrity calibration practically eliminates trace
length and proximity concerns, allowing customers to separate the power
sources and host PMIC as needed to optimize the system.
