Tiny MEMs resonators integrate load capacitors
ApexMEMS resonators are now available as standalone resonators, or as silicon die for integration into standard IC packages and modules. In both forms, ApexMEMS have built-in load capacitors for further integration and space savings.
ApexMEMS-based timing solutions deliver up to seven times better phase noise performance at half the power than our previous generation. At a tiny 0.42 mm x 0.42 mm size, the ApexMEMS resonators are 85% smaller than a typical quartz resonator, and also integrate the load capacitors. These new resonators provide stability as good as ±20 ppm while delivering superior reliability and best-in-class environmental resilience, like other SiTime devices. ApexMEMS resonators operate reliably at temperatures as high as 125oC, a useful feature when integrated inside plastic packages.
