IDT Offers Leading Network Search Engines in RoHS-Compliant Flip-Chip Packaging; Leading Communications IC Company Improves Environmental Program, Offering its Entire Product Portfolio in RoHS-compliant Packages

SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Sept. 19, 2005— IDT(TM) (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.) (Nasdaq: IDTI), today announced it has begun volume production of its RoHS (Restriction on Hazardous Substances)-compliant flip-chip packaged monolithic 512Kx36 (18-Mbit) and 256Kx36 (9-Mbit) network search engines (NSEs) with dual Network Processor Forum (NPF) Look Aside (LA-1) interfaces. By offering these NSEs in RoHS-compliant flip-chip packaging, IDT is enabling designers of telecommunications equipment to reach line rate performance up to OC-192 and beyond, while at the same time meeting new environmental regulations regarding lead-free products.

"Last December, we announced 99 percent of our packages were RoHS compliant. Today, we are pleased to proclaim that our entire product portfolio is RoHS compliant," said Anne Katz, vice president of worldwide assembly and test with IDT. "IDT believes it is globally essential for the semiconductor industry to provide environmentally safe components for electronics systems. Leveraging our extensive expertise in environmental compliance, coupled with our superior technical knowledge, we are able to offer our customers the best of both worlds -- our superior network search engine technology in RoHS-compliant flip-chip packaging -- enabling them to stay on the leading edge of performance in an environmentally responsible manner."

About the IDT NSEs with Dual LA-1 Interfaces

Operating at 250 million searches per second (MSPS), the IDT 512Kx36 (75K72234) and 256Kx36 (75K62234) NSEs offer fully integrated LA-1 compliant interfaces to allow a seamless connection between the NSE and the network processing unit (NPU), including AMCC's nP3700 NPUs and the Intel(R) IXP2400, Intel(R) IXP2800 and Intel(R) IXP2850 NPUs. Similar to existing devices within the IDT portfolio, the NSEs with dual LA-1 interfaces offer application-support features, such as dynamic database management for increased power savings and simultaneous multi-database lookup (SMDL), thereby enabling multiple packet searches up to 250 MSPS.

Lead-Free Background

IDT is among many companies participating in an industry-wide effort to develop lead-free solders and semiconductor packaging technologies. The goal is to create lead-free processes that are cost-effective and which maintain equivalent or improved levels of reliability. Soldering and plating technologies are used throughout the electronics industry, and leading manufacturers are addressing a range of issues relating to higher temperatures required for reflow and wave lead-free soldering. The efforts also include standard ways of evaluating product quality and reliability. Currently, the industry's focus is on making semiconductor package terminals and solder-ball connections lead-free.
