MEMS resonator integrates with oscillator circuits
When it comes to digital circuits and communications technologies, timing is everything. Now engineers can integrate a MEMS resonator into their own circuits for timing. Discover how.
SiTime has entered the resonator market with a MEMs device that can be integrated into semiconductor devices and oscillator modules.
When it comes to digital circuits and communications technologies, timing is everything. A little jitter or long latency can ruin your day. Many microcontrollers, ASICs, SoCs, and wireless systems rely on quartz resonators to provide the base frequency for their clocks. While crystal resonators serve many applications, they’re no aren’t the only option, especially where stability over time and temperature are critical. SiTime, a company known for precision timing. Has entered the resonator market with a MEMS device. SiTime has been manufacturing MEMS resonators for some time but has integrated them with oscillator circuits and a phase-locked loops to create complete oscillators such as the SiT9501.
