SiTime Enters Wearables, IoT Markets with 32 kHz SOI-MEMS

SiTime, which leverages SOI for high-performance MEMS timing solutions, has introduced what it says is the smallest, lowest power 32 kHz TCXO (temperature compensated oscillator – read the press release here). With its tiny footprint and ultra-low power consumption, the SiT1552 MEMS TCXO enables a paradigm shift in the size and battery life of wearable […]

SOI Reliability Key to SiTime MEMS Lifetime Warranty

(Courtesy: SiTime) The extreme reliability of SiTime’s MEMS devices, using SOI technology, has enabled the company to cover all its MEMS oscillators and clock generators with a lifetime warranty (press release here). SiTime contributed an excellent article to ASN a few years ago (click here to read it), explaining how their radical SOI-based approach put […]

SiTime, which leverages SOI for high-performance MEMS timing solutions, has introduced TempFlat™ MEMS

SiTime, which leverages SOI for high-performance MEMS timing solutions, has introduced TempFlat™ MEMS. Until recently, all MEMS oscillators used compensation circuitry to stabilize the output frequency over temperature. SiTime’s TempFlat MEMS is a revolutionary breakthrough that eliminates temperature compensation, resulting in dramatically higher performance, smaller size, lower power and cost, says the company. According to […]

SiTime: Using SOI Technology to Develop High-Performance MEMS Timing Solutions

A radical SOI-based approach puts  SiTime at the top of the fast-growing silicon-based timing market. SiTime, an analog semiconductor company, is revolutionizing the timing components industry with silicon MEMS timing solutions that replace legacy quartz products. SiTime offers oscillators (XO, SPXO), voltage-controlled oscillators (VCXO), temperature compensated oscillators (TCXO), and multi-PLL, multi-output clock generators. All these […]
