MEMS oscillator boasts 70 fsec phase noise
Martin Rowe at 5G Technology World writes about how 5G communications impact timing and data rates, including the timing of a bit shrinking and the increased role of timing
The SiT9501 from SiTime can reduce noise and jitter in network communications.
5G is more than a wireless access technology. Behind the radios sits copper and optical communications links to move data to their destinations. As communications links continue to increase data rates, the timing of a bit shrinks and timing gains in importance. That’s were oscillators and their phase noise come in. Oscillators need ever lower phase noise to minimize bit jitter. The SiT9501 MEMS oscillator from SiTime produces just 70 fsec of phase noise
