SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IDT® (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.)(NASDAQ:IDTI), a leading provider of essential mixed signal semiconductor solutions that enrich the digital media experience, today announced it has signed an agreement to divest its Micro Networks business to Spectrum Control, Inc. for approximately $13 million. The transaction, which has already received approval by the IDT Board of Directors, is expected to close by the end of November.

“Our Micro Networks business has been a stable business for IDT for many years. However, we continue to sharpen our focus on analog-intensive, mixed-signal solutions for the communications, computing and consumer markets.
