SiTime expands product portfolio with industry’s first kHz frequency silicon MEMS oscillator
Programmable features, small size and ruggedness are ideal for audio, microcontroller and high reliability industrial applications.
SiTime Corporation, the leader in MEMS-based silicon timing solutions, today introduced the SiT8503, the industry’s first kHz frequency silicon MEMS oscillator for audio, microcontroller and high reliability industrial applications. SiTime already has the industry’s broadest portfolio of Silicon MEMS-based, megahertz (MHz) frequency, differential oscillators, clock generators, VCXOs, spread spectrum timing products and embedded resonators. The SiT8503 adds kilohertz (kHz) frequency timing solutions to this portfolio and builds on SiTime’s capability as a one-stop silicon timing provider.
“The SiT8503 leverages its silicon MEMS technology and programmable architecture to offer many unique features that are not available from quartz, such as frequency and voltage configurability, small size, low power and extreme ruggedness,” said Piyush Sevalia, vice president of marketing at SiTime. “SiTime’s growing customer base is rapidly replacing their quartz oscillators with Silicon MEMS solutions. In addition, our industry-leading portfolio of silicon timing solutions is enabling us to become a strategic supplier of timing components to large OEMs worldwide.”
Some of the key features and benefits of the SiT8503 are:
Samples of the SiT8503 are available now and volume production will be available on Sept. 30, 2010. The 50 PPM SiT8503 in the 7.0x5.0 mm package is offered at a list price of $1.05 in 10,000 unit quantities.
SiTime is leading the electronics industry’s transition from quartz products to MEMS-based silicon timing solutions. SiTime’s products are the heartbeat of high-performance electronics such as FTTH and Passive Optical Networking (PON) equipment, 10-Gigabit Ethernet switches, Computing and Storage Servers as well as high volume applications such as Digital Cameras, LCD HDTVs, desktop and portable computers, Set Top Boxes (STB), Multi-function Printers and Solid-State Drives (SSD).
SiTime Corporation, the industry leader in MEMS-based analog semiconductor solutions, addresses the $5 Billion timing market with programmable silicon products that replace conventional, quartz technology. Headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif., SiTime is backed by leading venture capital firms NEA, Greylock, Jafco and Bosch.
