IDT Devices Makes EDN Magazine Hot 100 Products of 2003 List

12/18/2003 - IDTTM (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; Nasdaq: IDTI), a leading communications IC company, announced that it has received the EDN Hot 100 Products award for the third consecutive year. The 75K72100 network search engine (NSE) and the sequential flow-control (SFC) device family were recognized by the publication’s readership and editorial staff as hot products of 2003. EDN praised the winners of this award in a special report published in the December 11, 2003 issue for being the most innovative offerings announced during the past year and for making the readers of the publication “stand up and take notice.”

“This is the second consecutive year that an IDT NSE has been included, a testament to our leadership in delivering leading-edge products that accelerate packet processing,” said Greg Lang, president and CEO of IDT. “Additionally, IDT pioneered the new category of flow-control management integrated circuits this year, and having our SFC device family chosen for this prestigious honor by the readers and editors of EDN reinforces the innovative nature of this new solution and its importance to networking applications.”

The IDT 75K72100 NSE in a 512Kx36 (18-Mbit) configuration operates at up to 250 million searches per second (MSPS) and offers designers the ability to simultaneously search in separate, independent databases, increasing the search rate to support multiple full-speed OC-192 packet searches per instruction with a single device. IDT SFC devices, which implement patent-pending architecture, provide high-performance data-flow management by utilizing a seamless connection to an external double-data-rate (DDR) SDRAM for storing and transferring up to 1 Gigabit of data in a sequential fashion.

IDT IP Co-Processor Solutions
IDT provides a comprehensive family of IP co-processor solutions, including industry-leading network search engines and content inspection engines that accelerate packet processing and enable intelligent application management in next-generation networking equipment. IDT is recognized by RHK, Inc. and IDC as the technology leader, and as the volume shipment leader of NSEs. IDT offers the industry’s highest-performance NSE operating up to 250 MHz, and was the first vendor to introduce an NSE with an integrated LA-1 interface. The IDT NSE portfolio includes a family of custom devices, as well as families of NSEs with high-performance interfaces for ASICs, and glue-less interfaces to leading network processors, to accelerate packet classification and forwarding in core, metro and access networks. The IDT CIEs are capable of parsing and classifying data up to Layer 7, and are optimized for packet classification and content inspection in security and content-aware networking applications. IDT serves as chairman of the board of the Network Processing Forum ( and is an Associate Member of the Intel® Communications Alliance (

IDT Flow-Control Management ICs
As a leading provider of innovative products for the communications market, IDT continues to evolve its distinctive competencies in the integration of advanced memory and logic architectures to create a new category of value-added semiconductor devices. The IDT flow-control management devices combine critical functions such as high-speed buffering, switching, multiplexing/de-multiplexing, domain transition and random and sequential access. These devices meet the special requirements of system architects who need to solve data-flow-control issues in their communications equipment designs. The IDT family of off-the-shelf devices replace traditional methods of managing the flow of data streams at different rates within a system — previously accomplished with multiple ASICs, FPGAs, and external SRAM, DRAM or FIFOs.
