Last Updated: April 12, 2010

Free Tool Features Parametric Search Engine and Intuitive User Interface;
Facilitates Field Programmability

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 13, 2010 – Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) today announced a new software tool for selection and customization of Cypress’s market-leading programmable timing solutions. The CyClockWizard 1.0 tool includes a parametric search engine that allows customers to quickly identify the right product for their system needs. The free tool also integrates custom configuration and field programming of supported Cypress timing solutions.

The CyClockWizard 1.0 tool features an intuitive user interface for custom configuration of timing devices. Customers can directly program devices instantaneously using the CYCLKMAKER1 Hardware Programmer. Additionally, for Cypress’s FleXO™ family of programmable high-performance clock generators, the tool incorporates a calculation engine that enables customers to predict and optimize phase-noise performance.

About Cypress Timing Solutions
Cypress is a leader in programmable timing solutions for consumer electronics, communication, networking, and industrial applications. Cypress's portfolio of silicon based clock generators and buffers offers best-in-class flexibility, jitter performance and integration. The portfolio includes single and multiple-PLL programmable clock synthesizes, programmable crystal oscillators, VCXO, EMI reduction clocks, and programmable-skew and zero delay fanout buffers. Cypress’s proprietary spread spectrum clock technology helps reduce system EMI without needing mechanical solutions such as shielding and ferrite beads.

The FleXO family of programmable high-performance clock generators deliver ultra-low phase jitter performance as low as 0.6 ps – typical, across the 12 kHz to 20 MHz range, exceeding the requirements of demanding high-speed serial interface standards such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Fibre Channel, PCI Express and Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA). The family is ideal for switches and routers, 3G wireless base stations, Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) hubs, enterprise hard-disk drives, test equipment, professional video equipment and any system requiring high-performance clocks.The flexible clocks can be instantly programmed in the factory or field to any frequency up to 650 MHz.
