PRESS RELEASE

IDT's Sensor Technology Catapults New Y-Series Camera

Integrated Design Tools, Inc. Introduces the Y4 Lite

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Integrated Design Tools, Inc. (IDT) announced the assimilation of a new sensor technology into its Y-Series camera product line. Making strides in sensitivity within high-speed imaging, IDT's fully digital, 1024 x 1024 megapixel sensor is capable of capturing at high-frame rates and was successfully tested and integrated into the Y-Series platform. The outcome is the Y4 Lite, the first camera to benefit from this new technology.

"The Y-Series product line ultimately resulted when our scientists combined state-of-the-art CMOS sensors with the most advanced features we could imagine," said Dr. Luiz Lourenco, CEO of IDT. "This recent increase in sensitivity is an achievement, keeping the pixel to a relatively small size of 14 micron square."

From design to performance, the beauty is in the Y4 Lite's details. Its unique sensor boasts a 10x factor increase in sensitivity compared to the Sirius sensor which powers IDT's Y3 camera model. Y4 is capable of operating at 4,000 fps in full 1024 x 1024 pixel resolution. Using its windowing capability, the camera can acquire up to 256,000 fps with a reduced image size of 1024 x 16 pixels.

IDT anticipates full release of the Y4 in January 2009. The company, which recently unveiled its breakthrough N-Series, says it continues to exceed industry standards. For more information on products and innovations by Integrated Design Tools, Inc., visit IDTvision.com.
