IDT Launches New Inteprise Processor for SME/SOHO Wireless Networks

7/15/2003 - IDTTM (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; Nasdaq: IDTI), a leading communications IC company, strengthened its presence in the small and medium enterprise (SME) and small office/home office (SOHO) markets with the introduction of its new RC32336 InterpriseTM integrated communications processor. Delivering performance up to 180 MHz, the RC32336 InterpriseTM processor offers designers of wireless gateway and wireless access point equipment increased functionality and integration, allowing for connectivity to a wide range of networking devices including wireless local area network (WLAN) chipsets. The new IDT device expands the company’s broad portfolio of InterpriseTM processors and enables system developers to design fully featured and cost-effective solutions at a compelling price/performance point.

“IDT is committed to providing integrated processors that meet our customers’ demands for higher levels of performance and greater functional integration to satisfy the requirements of both existing and emerging high-growth segments of the data networking industry,” said Alex Soohoo, strategic marketing manager for the Internetworking Products Division at IDT. “Our new RC32336 InterpriseTM processor is targeted at the cost-sensitive, high-volume SME/SOHO wireless gateway and wireless access point markets. However, the processor’s performance and the incorporation of several general-purpose interfaces also make it a compelling device for markets that our existing InterpriseTM processors currently serve, such as wired SOHO gateways, SOHO routers and managed Layer-2 Ethernet switches.”

Performance and Integration Allow Range of Connectivity and Lower System Costs
The RC32336 InterpriseTM integrated communications processor incorporates a 32-bit MIPS® CPU core operating up to 180 MHz, enabling both single and dual-band WLAN designs, and is compatible with a range of real-time operating systems, including Linux® and VxWorks®. The addition of two Ethernet MACs with industry standard media independent interfaces (MII) provides connectivity to a wide range of networking devices and equipment. The RC32336 InterpriseTM processor also integrates a 16-bit PCMCIA version 2.1 interface that provides system designers with a seamless connection to a range of peripherals and chipsets, including WLAN solutions. Like existing members of the InterpriseTM PCI family, the RC32336 InterpriseTM processor incorporates a 32-bit version 2.2 peripheral component interconnect (PCI) controller, as well as an SDRAM memory controller that interfaces to a full range of industry-standard memory products, enabling designs optimized for cost and board real estate conservation.

The RC32336 InterpriseTM processor is software compatible with the other members of the InterpriseTM family, allowing customers to choose from a suite of proven off-the-shelf application software and development tools, that lower design cycles and speed time to market.
