85% Smaller, Most Accurate MEMS Timing Solution is Ideal for Wearables, IoT
SUNNYVALE, Calif. – March 14, 2016 – SiTime Corporation, a MEMS and analog semiconductor company and a wholly owned subsidiary of MegaChips Corporation (Tokyo Stock Exchange: 6875), today introduced the SiT156x/7x families of 32 kHz Super-TCXOs. These unique timing solutions are available in a tiny, 1.2 mm2 footprint, which is up to 85% smaller than quartz products. Additionally, by using SiTime’s revolutionary TempFlat MEMS™ technology, these Super-TCXOs deliver ±5 ppm accuracy, which enables chronometer-grade timekeeping and the longest battery life. The SiT1568 also offers an innovative, in-system, auto-calibration feature that allows customers to eliminate timing inaccuracies introduced during system assembly, reflow, underfill, and overmolding. Designers of wearable, IoT and mobile applications such as miniaturized modules, smart watches, activity trackers, tablets, mobile phones and smart meters can use these unique features to offer the best timekeeping and longest battery life.
“In each of the past three years, SiTime has introduced innovative MEMS timing solutions for the wearable, IoT and mobile markets. These solutions have been tremendously successful – SiTime has already shipped 60 million units into these markets and growth is accelerating,” said Piyush Sevalia, executive vice president of marketing at SiTime. “The SiT156x/7x 32 kHz Super-TCXOs enable our customers to develop game-changing electronics with the smallest size, best timekeeping and the longest battery life – great examples of how SiTime’s MEMS timing solutions are transforming the timing industry.”
The SiT1566, SiT1568, and SiT1576 Super-TCXOs are available today in a 1.5 x 0.8 x 0.6 mm (l x w x h) chip scale package (CSP). These devices perform the following critical functions in a wearable, IoT or mobile system.
Compared to a 32 kHz quartz TCXO, oscillator, or resonator, the SiT156x/7x MEMS Super-TCXOs offer the following unique features.
Samples of the SiT156x and SiT157x families are now available from SiTime for qualified customers. General availability and production volumes will be available in Q2 2016. Pricing is available upon request.
