SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 2, 2012 — Integrated Device Technology, Inc. ( IDT®) (NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that ITE Tech Inc., a leading Taiwanese IC design company, has executed a patent license agreement for use of certain IDT timing patents. ITE proactively approached IDT to license required IDT solid-state oscillator patents to strengthen the competitiveness of ITE’s integrated USB 2.0 flash drive controller.

“We are pleased to see ITE acknowledge the use of and contractually license our IP,” said Fred Zust, vice president and general manager of the Timing and Synchronization Division at IDT. “As demonstrated with the Phison patent litigation and settlement, IDT will actively seek and rectify patent infringements related to our solid-state oscillator IP.
