IDT offers the industry's broadest portfolio of IP co-processors, with its family of pin- and software-compatible ASIC-based devices, and with IP co-processors that glue-lessly interface to network processors from leading NPU vendors, including AMCC and Intel.

"With more than 20 years of experience in supplying communications ICs, standard logic and specialty memories, we deliver best-in-class quality in high volume and are pleased to lead the industry in this competitive market space," said Dave Cech, director of tactical marketing for IDT's IP co-processors.
