Taking the Pulse of Trends in Timing—the Heartbeat of Electronics
In this forecast article in Electronic Design, Piyush Sevalia, EVP Marketing at SiTime, explores three significant trends impacting the timing market in 2021 and beyond.
What you’ll learn:
- Higher-accuracy timing that must work in the “real world.”
- Newer MEMS timing devices are incorporating sophisticated temperature-compensation algorithms.
- Electronic components must become much smaller and more integrated.
When thinking of high-performance electronics, timing devices aren’t the first to come to mind. However, they’re crucial to the success of new electronics. Timing devices provide the heartbeat in electronic systems by delivering a consistent signal that’s the reference to all other digital components. According to estimates by Dedalus Consulting and SiTime, timing is an $8 billion market that’s forecast to reach $10 billion by 2024, driven by the growth in 5G, IoT, automotive, and cloud segments.
