AN10043 Measurement Guidelines for 32 kHz SiT15xx Oscillators

SiTime’s TempFlat™ MEMS 32.768 kHz SiT153x/4x oscillators and SiT152x temperature compensated oscillators (TCXOs) are a low power, cost effective and reliable alternative to quartz resonator based solutions used in the multitude of electronic devices that require a timekeeping function. Due to the low frequency and low power drive characteristics of SiT15xx oscillators, certain measurement techniques must be followed to accurately measure three key parameters: device current consumption, output waveform, and frequency. This document describes how to accurately make these measurements.
