Want to simplify power supply issues and ensure signal integrity?
SiTime timing solutions can help.

SiTime MEMS oscillators integrate multiple on-chip voltage regulators to filter power supply noise, minimizing the need for an external dedicated LDO and improving signal integrity. Our oscillators offer higher robustness with power-supply-induced jitter sensitivity as low as 0.01 ps/mV.

SiTime MEMS-based oscillators with multiple internal voltage regulators

As systems adopt smaller form factors and become denser, immunity to power supply noise becomes increasingly important. There are lots of fast edges on the board that create crosstalk and jitter. This noise is amplified when the power supply and other devices on the board turn on or off during operation.

It is important to understand the power supply immunity of clocks, especially in real-word conditions. Quartz oscillator specifications are often based on lab tests that use a very clean power supply. However, actual systems can have noisier power supplies.

Noise can be filtered with passive filters and decoupling capacitors placed near the power supply input of the oscillator. But some noise remains. And this can increase jitter on the output clock, negatively impacting system timing margins and leading to higher error rates.

To solve these problems, SiTime integrates multiple on-chip regulators to filter power supply noise and protect the oscillator. This improves system performance and reduces component count.
