CAMARILLO, Calif. -- April 3, 2014

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and
mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced the availability of its UHD-SDI
GS6140 6G adaptive cable equalizer and GS6150 UHD-SDI 6G reclocker, adding to
Semtech’s line-up of the industry’s best performing solutions for multi-rate
connectivity up to 6G UHD-SDI.

Semtech Gennum Products will be showcasing these products, along with
Semtech’s comprehensive, end-to-end portfolio of multi rate UHD-SDI video
solutions at the National Association of Broadcasters show in Las Vegas, April
7-10, 2014, booth N2116.

The GS6140 is the industry’s lowest power adaptive cable equalizer and also
delivers best-in-class cable reach at 6G UHD-SDI data rates without
sacrificing best-in-class cable reach at 3G, HD and SD data-rates. The GS6140
is ideal for demanding channel-dense applications that require both long cable
reach and extremely low power – at any data rate.

In addition, the GS6150 is the industry’s first multi-rate reclocker with 6G
UHD-SDI support. For high-density applications requiring an exceptionally
small device footprint, the GS6151 offers the performance benefits of the
GS6150 in a smaller package.

“The emergence of UHDTV has directed the broadcast industry to rapidly develop
solutions that leverage UHD-SDI connectivity. Semtech’s UHD-SDI product
platforms have allowed us to respond quickly to the needs of our customers
without compromising best-in-class performance,” said Gary Beauchamp,
Executive Vice President & General Manager, Signal Integrity Product Group.
