SiTime Corporation Key Developments

Sitime Corporation Introduces Elite Platform Encompassing Super-TCXOs (Temperature Compensated Oscillators) and Oscillators

SiTime Corporation introduced an Elite Platform encompassing Super-TCXOs (temperature compensated oscillators) and oscillators. These precision devices are engineered to solve long-standing timing problems in telecommunications and networking equipment. With the Elite Platform, communications equipment can deliver the performance, best reliability and quality of service, even in the presence of environmental stressors. Elite timing solutions are based on an innovative DualMEMS™ architecture with TurboCompensation. This architecture delivers exceptional dynamic performance with three key elements: obust, reliable, and proven TempFlat MEMS that eliminates activity dips and enables 30 times better vibration immunity than quartz; DualMEMS temperature sensing with 100% accurate thermal coupling that enables 40 times faster temperature tracking, which ensures the best performance under airflow and rapid temperature changes; and ly integrated mixed-signal circuits with on-chip regulators, a TDC (temperature to digital converter) and a low-noise PLL that deliver 5 times better immunity to power-supply noise, 30 uK temperature resolution that is 10 times better than quartz, and support for any frequency between 1 and 700 MHz.

Avnet, Inc. Announces Distribution Agreement with SiTime Corporation

Avnet, Inc. announced a distribution agreement with SiTime Corporation, Avnet will offer SiTime’s MEMS oscillators in the Americas and Asia, excluding Japan. SiTime offers MEMS-based silicon timing solutions that can replace legacy quartz products, providing greater performance, programmability, simplified board layout and reduced cost. SiTime’s product line includes 60 base product families and over 200,000 individual parts.

SiTime Corporation and MegaChips Corporation Introduces 32 kHz Super-TCXO with In-System Auto-Calibration

SiTime Corporation and MegaChips Corporation introduced the SiT156x/7x families of 32 kHz Super-TCXOs. These unique timing solutions are available in a tiny, 1.2 mm2 footprint, which is up to 85% smaller than quartz products. Additionally, by using SiTime's revolutionary TempFlat MEMS™ technology, these Super-TCXOs deliver ±5 ppm accuracy, which enables chronometer-grade timekeeping and the longest battery life. The SiT1568 also offers an innovative, in-system, auto-calibration feature that allows customers to eliminate timing inaccuracies introduced during system assembly, reflow, underfill, and overmolding. Designers of wearable, IoT and mobile applications such as miniaturized modules, smart watches, activity trackers, tablets, mobile phones and smart meters can use these unique features to offer the best timekeeping and longest battery life. The SiT1566, SiT1568, and SiT1576 Super-TCXOs are available now in a 1.5 x 0.8 x 0.6 mm (l x w x h) chip scale package (CSP). These devices perform the following critical functions in a wearable, IoT or mobile system. Reference for real time clock (RTC) function; Sleep clock for connectivity – Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), WiFi; Reference for audio subsystem. Compared to a 32 kHz quartz TCXO, oscillator, or resonator, the SiT156x/7x MEMS Super-TCXOs offer the following unique features. Up to 85% smaller footprint; ±5 ppm all-inclusive frequency stability, includes initial offset and variations over industrial temperature (-40 to +85°C) – a more accurate clock enables the best timekeeping and extends battery life; Optional in-system auto-calibration (SiT1568) removes frequency offsets associated with assembly, reflow, underfill, and overmolding and ensures that system timekeeping is not impacted by manufacturing stressors; Programmable temperature sensing update rate that maintains dynamic and overall stability in the presence of fast thermal gradients in industrial and mobile applications; Optional factory-programmable frequencies from 1 Hz to 1 MHz (SiT1576) to support low-power RF and wireless charging; Ability to drive multiple loads, which reduces the number of components on a board; ±1.5 ppm 1st year aging (2 times better than quartz devices) which ensures best timekeeping over many years; Excellent jitter performance that supports audio standards; SiT1566, SiT1568 and SiT1576 can be used as an audio reference in wearable electronics; Up to 65% faster startup time (300 milliseconds); Up to 40% thinner, with a max height of 0.60 mm, for height-limited modules.
