Electronic Specifier reports that SiTime Corporation has announced that it has cumulatively shipped two billion units of its silicon MEMS timing solutions. Over a decade ago, SiTime saw the opportunity to siliconize the timing industry.
New electronics, driven by the consumer’s need for omnipresent connectivity and faster data speeds, needed more stringent timing, especially in harsh environmental conditions, which current technologies could not deliver.
Applications such as 5G, cloud, automated driving, and IoT emerged, and the need for SiTime solutions grew rapidly. Today, SiTime is the only company that is solely focused on timing and has overcome the challenges of delivering high-reliability timing solutions in high volume.
“I’m very proud of the SiTime team that has dedicated years of focus, passion, and commitment to success to deliver this significant milestone,” said Rajesh Vashist, CEO of SiTime. “As the world becomes more connected, precision timing will play a critical role in 5G, cloud, automotive, and IoT applications. SiTime will continue to provide differentiated timing solutions for these applications and deliver value to our customers.
“We’ve expanded our executive team with industry leaders who have delivered success in adverse conditions. Earlier this year, Vince Pangrazio joined SiTime as EVP and Chief Legal Officer. More recently, Atul Shingal joins us as EVP of Operations, and Fari Assaderaghi returns to SiTime as EVP of Technology and Engineering. We look forward to their meaningful contributions to the future of SiTime.”
