SiTime Differential Oscillators Recognized by Prestigious UBM Electronics ACE Awards

SiT912x Differential Oscillators Named Finalist in Analog IC Ultimate Products Category

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – February 22, 2012SiTime Corporation, an analog semiconductor company, announced that its SiT912x differential oscillators were selected as a finalist in the EE Times and EDN 2012 UBM Electronics ACE Awards in the Analog IC Ultimate Products category. The awards program honors the people and companies behind the technologies and products that are changing the world of electronics.

“SiTime introduced the first production MEMS oscillator in 2006, an event which fundamentally changed the timing industry. Previously, quartz and semiconductor companies respectively owned the expertise of passive resonators and active analog timing circuits; today, SiTime is shipping both passive resonators and active oscillators and clock generators. By combining these two disparate technologies under one roof, SiTime has improved performance over 100-fold in the past five years and continues to innovate at the same pace. Our products combine this performance with the best flexibility, reliability and cost, resulting in substantial benefits to the customer. Over 600 electronics companies have recognized the value of SiTime’s MEMS timing solutions and have consumed 75 million units to date,” said Piyush Sevalia, vice president of marketing at SiTime. “We are honored that the selection panel of this prestigious award program has also taken note of our unique MEMS and analog technology by nominating SiTime’s SiT912x family of differential oscillators as a finalist in the Analog IC Ultimate Products category. This award further validates the success of our game-changing solutions in the electronics industry.”

“The new ACE Awards program, presented for the first time by both EE Times and EDN, provides us with an opportunity to recognize the technologies that have made a difference in the way we work, live and play over the past year. We congratulate the finalists on their innovations and leadership in the electronics industry. Additionally, we look forward to our awards ceremony in March to celebrate the innovation, creativity and contributions of the engineering community,” said Junko Yoshida, Editor in Chief, EE Times, UBM Electronics.
