Yole SiTime SiT1552 MEMS Oscillator Icone Flyer.pdf Adobe Acrobat StandardThe smallest MEMS oscillator on the market assembled in an innovative Wafer Level Chip Size Package

SiTime presents its first MEMS oscillator assembled in Wafer Level Chip Scale package to get the word smallest (1.2mm2) ultra-low power oscillator for consumer and industrial applications.

SiTime is taking fully benefit of all semiconductor manufacturing processes and infrastructures in order to develop a really compact device and compete with quarts solutions for the same application.

This full Reverse Costing analysis has been conducted to provide insight on technology data, manufacturing cost and selling price of the SiTime SiT1552 low-power 32kHz Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator.


The report includes comparisons with SiT8002 Oscillator and with the Dicera DSC8002 and Silicon Lab Si504 Oscillators.

SiTime SiT1552 uses an innovative 1.55x0.85 mm Wafer Level Chip Scale Packaging containing two stacked dies: a MEMS oscillator and an ASIC for signal conditioning. The MEMS oscillator is flipped and connected to the ASIC by solder bumps. The component is protected by a polymeric coating and electrically connected by solder balls. For this new generation oscillator, SiTime has integrated many new technologies in order to be competitive to quartz devices.

The MEMS oscillator is manufactured on SOI wafer using MEMSFirstTM and EpiSealTM processes licensed by Robert Bosch GmbH.

Across the Enterprise, from marketing to purchasing and R&D, product manufacturing cost is a major factor which has to be measured and then optimized. Since 1993, System Plus Consulting’s mission has been to develop and sell the right tools and services to meet these costing requirements.

System Plus Consulting utilizes an engineering approach to cost. Cost models and technology expertise are combined to provide customers with an accurate and objective estimation of manufacturing costs and selling prices.

Headquartered in Nantes, France, System Plus Consulting is specialized in technology and cost analysis of electronic components and systems. During our 20 years in business, we have built and refined detailed cost models as the primary tools for hundreds of analyses. The highly qualified System Plus cost engineers combine broad and deep skills in semiconductor and electronics technologies with years of experience in cost modeling.

We offer:
− Custom reverse costing analyses: technology analysis followed by cost evaluation
− Standard reverse costing reports: regular publications on innovative products (available from our catalogue)
− Costing tools: software tools combining models and data to perform cost analysis

System Plus Consulting analyzes any type of electronic devices and systems, with a special focus on semiconductor technologies. Major fields of technology and cost expertise are:
− Integrated Circuits
− Power Devices and Modules
− MEMS & Sensors
− Photonics: LED, Image Sensors
− Packaging including wafer level
− Electronic Boards and Systems

Our analyses are used by Purchasing Departments to measure their suppliers’ cost structure, R&D Departments to confirm technological choices depending on their impact on costs, and Benchmarking/Marketing Departments to monitor the products on the market.

System Plus Consulting is committed to provide a high level of service:
− Delivery of reports and custom analyses with a minimum lead time.
− Results presentation and online Q&A sessions when support is needed.
− Open methodology and full confidentiality in order to maintain a trustful collaboration.

Since 2008, our partnership with YOLE Développement has allowed us to stay at the forefront of technologies and has added a market view to our reports.
