Today, the pace of innovation in electronics is increasing and the adoption rate of new technologies is accelerating1. As a result, electronics companies are under increasing pressure to get to market quickly with a well-designed, differentiated product – one that offers true customer benefits. To be successful, OEMs need responsive suppliers that provide products that are readily available.
Semiconductor suppliers have used programmable technology to provide solutions that can be configured quickly and are available with short lead-times. SiTime is using programmable analog technology to ensure that its MEMS timing solutions are easily configurable to the customer’s exact specifications and readily available. Now, in the interest of rapid availability, SiTime has enabled Digi-Key to offer our custom-programmed MEMS oscillators with 24-hour lead-times.
This is a tremendous improvement over the options available from quartz suppliers which are available only in limited frequencies, stabilities and supply voltages. Customers will greatly benefit from the unbeatable combination of programmable feature-rich timing products and fast-turn service. It’s not a coincidence that the adoption of MEMS timing is accelerating along with the pace of innovation.
