SiTime® Corporation, a market leader in precision timing, introduced the Elite X™ Super-TCXO® for edge networks such as data centers, 5G front haul, connected cars and industrial IoT. In these applications, Elite X solves critical timing problems and enables delivery of new services.
To enable new time-sensitive services such as ADAS, virtual reality and smart manufacturing, edge devices will need to deliver faster speeds with lower latency. Precision timing plays a crucial role in their success. Legacy timing devices such as quartz TCXOs and mini-OCXOs have well-known weaknesses such as sensitivity to thermal shock and vibration, stability degradation at high temperatures, and shorter operating life. By using silicon MEMS technology that is inherently more robust and reliable, Elite X overcomes these problems and enables the next generation of time-sensitive services everywhere.
In edge networks, additional specifications such as aging, warm-up time and power consumption are important for overall performance. Even here, SiTime Elite X outperforms legacy timing devices, simplifies system design and offers dependable, consistent performance.
