SiTime Extends Leadership with Highest Performance Silicon MEMS Timing Platform
Excellent Performance Enables OCXO, TCXO and VCXO Products for Telecom, Networking, Wireless and Storage Applications
SUNNYVALE, Calif. – February 2, 2011 – SiTime Corporation, the leader in MEMS-based silicon timing solutions, today introduced their “Encore” platform, the industry’s highest performance Silicon MEMS timing solution. This revolutionary platform offers excellent stability, phase noise, jitter and aging performance and enables MEMS-based OCXO, TCXO and VCXO products for Telecom, Networking, Wireless and Storage applications. Like all of SiTime’s oscillator offerings, Encore also offers pin compatibility with existing quartz-based solutions, the best flexibility and lead time, the smallest size, and the highest reliability.
“SiTime has used its Silicon MEMS technology and programmable analog expertise to deliver the best price-performance timing solutions that are available today,” said Rajesh Vashist, CEO of SiTime. “We believe that the Encore platform changes the game significantly as it forms an inflection point in the adoption of MEMS-based silicon timing solutions. These products offer the compelling benefits of silicon – flexibility, size, power and lead time – and enable customers to completely eliminate quartz from their systems.”
Performance on the Encore platform includes:
- ± 0.5 PPM frequency stability.
- 650 femtoseconds of integrated RMS random phase jitter, measured over 12 kHz to 20 MHz. With this performance, Encore-based products are an excellent fit for Telecom, Networking, Wireless and Storage applications.
- 200 femtoseconds of integrated RMS random phase jitter, using the FibreChannel 8.5Gbps jitter mask.
- The widest pull range, up to ± 1600 PPM, on VCXOs.
SiTime is currently sampling the Encore chips to customers. For more information, please visit http://www.sitime.com/products/Encore.
