Cypress Introduces Zero-Delay Buffers With Best-in-Class Performance For High-Speed Communications And Consumer Devices
 

Two New Enhanced Performance Clock Distribution Buffers Offer Industry's Highest Operating Frequency Coupled with Lowest Cycle-to-Cycle Jitter

SAN JOSE, Calif., September 29, 2005 - Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: CY), a world leader in timing technology solutions, today announced production availability of enhanced performance Zero-Delay Buffers (ZDBs) that outperform all pin-compatible products for high-speed communications and consumer devices. The CY23EP05 and CY23EP09 phase-locked loop (PLL) clock buffers offer the highest operating frequency, the lowest cycle-to-cycle jitter and the lowest output-to-output skew on the market. The products add to Cypress's portfolio of timing solutions for applications such as multiservice routers and switches, basestations, plasma displays and set-top boxes. 

Cypress's enhanced performance ZDBs offer powerful performance, with a 220-MHz maximum operating frequency and 3.3- or 2.5-volt operating voltage. In addition, the CY23EP05 and CY23EP09 offer best-in-class performance with 55-ps cycle-to-cycle jitter and 100-ps output-to-output skew. Both of the enhanced performance ZDBs are available in lead-free packages.

"The introduction of these enhanced performance Zero-Delay Buffers demonstrates Cypress's commitment to pushing the performance envelope for timing solutions," said Wendy Zhou, marketing manager for Cypress's Timing Distribution Products. "Cypress was first to market with zero-delay buffers and we have extended our leadership, offering our customers the industry's broadest portfolio of timing solutions."
