New Cypress Website Helps Designers To Reduce Electro-Magnetic Interference With Spread Spectrum Timing Solutions

Last Updated: March 31, 2008

Informative, Easily-Navigated Resource at
Showcases Industry-Leading Portfolio, Offers Design Resources for Combating EMI

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 31, 2008 - Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: CY) today introduced a new website focused on optimized solutions for reducing Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI). The new EMI Reduction Timing Solutions website presents information on Cypress's industry-leading portfolio of spread spectrum timing solutions, and how they can be used to effectively address EMI. The website can be accessed at"

The new EMI Reduction Timing Solutions website provides an intuitive navigation scheme with five categories: Technology, Solutions, Products, Support, and News & Events. Users are only a single click away from accessing timing product information, direct links to the Cypress store, samples requests, software downloads, online training, and local sales contacts. The website offers user interface features such as dynamic drop-down menus that provide a consistent and efficient navigation experience. It also provides rich flash animations that graphically demonstrate the value of spread spectrum timing solutions.

"More and more customers are choosing spread spectrum timing solutions instead of conventional suppression and containment techniques for reducing EMI," said Travis Linton, product marketing manager for Cypress's Timing Solutions products. "This new website clearly communicates the value of spread spectrum timing solutions in combating EMI, and helps designers to quickly and efficiently implement those solutions in their systems."

About EMI Reduction Through Spread Spectrum Timing Solutions
The radiation of electromagnetic energy is a common concern for designers of electronic devices. When higher clock frequencies are used, the likelihood of violating EMI standards increases. The traditional method for reducing radiated emissions is to filter or contain the offending signals, but this can impact system cost and board space. Spread spectrum timing solutions reduce EMI peaks by spreading the energy from a clock across a wider frequency band, and can be implemented with fewer or no additional suppression and containment components. Spread spectrum timing solutions allow modulation to be maintained as clock signals are propagated to their destinations, enabling peak EMI reductions of 2 dB to 20 dB.
