    Investment Highlights

    IDTI reported the following highlights for the quarter ended fiscal third quarter ended January 2, 2011:

    -The world’s first Serial RapidIO Gen2 switches with virtual channel and security functionality to improve network performance and scalability of 4G LTE deployment.

    -The industry’s first fully JEDEC-compliant Memory Buffer for DDR3 LRDIMM, enabling a new generation of DDR3 memory technology for servers, workstations and storage equipment.

    -It demonstrated the world’s lowest power DDR3 register running at an industry-first 1,867Mbps in a standard server at the Supercomputing 2010 (SC10) conference.

    -The industry’s first signal-conditioning re-timers that are fully compliant with the upcoming release of the PCI Express® 3.0 standard, for use in servers, enterprise storage and communications systems.

    -The industry’s first single-layer multi-touch capacitive touch screen controller, which simplifies the sensor manufacturing process and lowers cost without sacrificing features or performance.

    -It demonstrated the world’s first usage of the DisplayPortTM auxiliary channel to carry touch screen data to the operating system in tablets, notebooks and other display devices.

    -The introduction of the industry’s first DisplayPort-over-Ethernet adapter based on the IDT VLX1000 PanelPortTM LinkXtendTM device.

    -A new family of DisplayPort-to-HDMI or DVI translators targeted at tablet and multi-monitor applications.

    Its new real-time clock with temperature compensation, providing high accuracy and ultra-low power for use in utility metering, HVAC, point-of-sale terminals, security alarms, vending machines and other security-related equipment.

    The chipmaker reported fiscal third quarter adjusted earnings of 15 cents per share, just a penny ahead of the consensus estimate. Revenue jumped 8% year-over-year to $153.2 million, which was in line with expectations.

    “Our third-quarter results were in line with our prior projections as we continue to execute our long-term strategy,” commented IDTI president and CEO Dr. Ted Tewksbury. “We made significant progress reducing channel inventories during the quarter, while growing sales in the enterprise computing end market. We are well positioned to accelerate revenue and earnings growth in the second half of this calendar year as our core business improves and new products continue to ramp, driven by cloud computing and the rollout of 4G/LTE wireless infrastructure.”

    New Products

    IDTI has unveiled what it claims is the industry’s first touch screen controller IC optimized for its proprietary single-layer multi-touch projected capacitive touch screen technology. The new touch screen technology and controller solution offers a true single-layer solution, not requiring cross-over isolation points that other solutions require, yet still maintaining full multi-touch capability. The result is a lower-cost total solution that does not sacrifice features or performance.

    “The new LDS7000 family of touch controllers enables our customers to take full advantage of IDT’s true single-layer touch screen technology,” said Alvin Wong, IDIT general manager of the Advanced User Interface group. “Our innovative design and multi-touch capabilities allow touch screen manufacturers to simplify their manufacturing processes, yet maintain the critical feature set that is required for today’s most advanced consumer devices. IDT continues to extend its presence in breakthrough capacitive touch technologies and designs that improve the user experience, so our customers can deliver winning products to the market.”

    The Company also recently announced industry-first fully JEDEC-compliant Memory Buffer for DDR3 LRDIMM.  It claimed the new memory technology dramatically increases performance of memory-bound applications such as cloud computing and virtualization.

    “IDT is the industry leader in memory buffer technology dating back to FBDIMM, and that expertise and domain knowledge is applied to our MB3 products for DDR3,” Mario Montana, IDTI vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Computing Division, stated in a press statement.  “We have worked diligently with our customers, ecosystem partners and the JEDEC standards group to bring this new technology to fruition.”
