Using SiTimes’ SOI-MEMS based oscillator can extend battery life by a full day in some apps, Piyush Sevalia, Executive Vice President, Marketing for SiTime explained in a recent Planet Analog piece (read the whole thing here). The traditional timing device is a quartz (passive crystal) resonator, which doesn’t draw any power itself. But it doesn’t […]
SiTime’s SOI-MEMS solution is a key part of a new realtime health and fitness tracking solution from MegaChips called “frizz”. MegaChips has announced a partnership with Bosch Sensortec to provide a complete reference design for use of frizz in smartphones, wearables and other personal devices allowing consumers to monitor their activities in real time (read […]
SOI-MEMS timing device leader SiTime Corporation is being acquired by MegaChips Corporation, a top 25 fabless semiconductor company based in Japan for $200 million in cash. (read the press release here). This transaction combines two complementary fabless semiconductor leaders that provide solutions for the growing Wearables, Mobile and Internet of Things markets. “MEMS components are fuelling […]
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 […]
(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. 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, which leverages SOI for high-performance MEMS timing solutions, has entered the smartphone/tablet/mobile app market with the first MEMS oscillator in a chip scale package (CSP). SiTime’s solutions offer area savings of 85%, cut power by 50% and are 15 times more reliable, all of which enable smaller, lower power and longer lasting mobile electronics. […]
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 […]
Continuing it extremely successful line of SOI-MEMS based products, SiTime has introduced its SiT500x family, the industry’s first Voltage Controlled, Temperature Compensated Oscillator (VCTCXO) products with ±0.5 PPM stability. Targets are telecom, networking and wireless apps.
Thanks to strong worldwide demand for its SOI-based Oscillators, Clock Generators and Resonators, SiTime‘s cumulative shipments have topped 50 million units.
