MEMS oscillators improve reliability and system performance in motor control applications

Reference timing devices such as resonators and oscillators are used in electronic motors control circuits to provide stable reference clocks. These timing devices have historically been based on quartz crystal technology – previously the only viable option. However, in recent years, silicon MEMS (micro-electro mechanical systems) timing devices have begun to rapidly replace quartz-based devices because they offer higher reliability and robustness against shock and vibration, better frequency stability over high temperature, programmable features, and very short lead-times.

Read this White Paper to learn why MEMS oscillators are more resilient in hostile environments, resistant to shock and vibration, highly immune to electromagnetic energy and power supply noise, and more.
