On October 24, 2007, Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (the Company) announced that Gregory S. Lang (Mr. Lang) will be resigning as the president and chief executive officer upon satisfactory completion of a search for his successor. Mr. Lang has entered into an executive transition agreement (the Transition Agreement) with the Company dated as of November 13, 2007.
Under the terms of the Transition Agreement, Mr. Lang will continue as the president and chief executive officer of the Company during a transition period (the Transition Period).

Payment of Mid-Year Bonuses
On November 15, 2007, the compensation committee of the Board approved the payment of mid-year bonuses, the specifics of which are described below, pursuant to the Companys Incentive Compensation Plan (Incentive Compensation Plan). The Incentive Compensation Plan is a broad-based plan in which the Companys executive officers (including the Chief
Executive Officer) are eligible to participate. The Incentive Compensation Plan provides for certain cash incentive compensation for the Companys eligible employees for the achievement of certain individual, business unit and Company-wide performance goals. The Incentive Compensation Plan was established to align employee goals and efforts with the Companys goals and direction. The Incentive Compensation Plan is intended to encourage outstanding performance, share the benefits of successful Company performance with eligible employees, enhance teamwork and support a consistent process for establishing, measuring and rewarding performance.
For fiscal year 2008, the Board approved specific threshold, target and maximum performance values for Company-wide performance based on the Companys non-GAAP earnings per share (EPS). The payout scale under the Incentive Compensation Plan will have specific achievement levels assigned to each EPS value, with the level of the Companys achievement of the target EPS value resulting in an achievement factor expressed as a percentage. For fiscal year 2008, if the Company does not meet the minimum EPS value, a 0% EPS achievement factor is applied; if the Company meets the minimum EPS value, a threshold 50% EPS achievement factor is applied; and if the Company meets the target EPS value, the target 110% EPS achievement factor is applied. The maximum EPS achievement factor for fiscal year 2008 is 200%.
Pursuant to the terms of the Incentive Compensation Plan, including, but not limited to, the threshold, target and maximum performance values established by the board of directors for fiscal year 2008, the compensation committee of the Board approved and the Company will pay a mid-year cash bonus award to the Companys named executive officers as follows: Gregory S. Lang $177,348, Clyde R. Hosein $64,526, Jimmy J. M. Lee $64,799, Mike Hunter $58,003 and Chuen-Der Lien $53,115.
The Company intends to provide additional information regarding the compensation awarded to the named executive officers for the 2008 fiscal year in the Companys proxy statement for the 2008 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, which is expected to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in July 2008.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
