SiTime Corporation Key Developments
SiTime Corporation Introduces TempFlat(TM) MEMS
Jul 10 13
SiTime Corporation introduced TempFlat(TM) MEMS. Until recently, all MEMS oscillators used compensation circuitry to stabilize the output frequency over temperature. SiTime's TempFlat MEMS is a revolutionary breakthrough that eliminates temperature compensation, resulting in dramatically higher performance, smaller size, lower power and cost. SiTime's TempFlat MEMS is an exciting development that enables SiTime to target any precision timing application, without exception. The unbeatable combination of SiTime's TempFlat MEMS technology and semiconductor infrastructure will permanently change the timing market, and accelerate the adoption of silicon MEMS timing solutions.
SiTime Corporation Introduces SiT15xx Family of 32 kHz MEMS Oscillators
Mar 27 13
SiTime Corporation introduced the SiT15xx family of 32 kHz MEMS oscillators that replace legacy quartz crystal resonators. This new family is targeted at mobile applications, such as smartphones and tablets, which require small size and low power. The SiT15xx family overcomes the limitations of quartz-based devices in several ways; SiTime's solutions offer area savings of 85%, cut power by 50% and are 15 times more reliable, all of which enable smaller, lower power and longer lasting mobile electronics. The SiT153x family replaces quartz crystal resonators and operates from a 1.2V to 3.63V regulated power supply, making them ideal for smartphones that use a coin-cell or super-cap battery backup. The SiT154x family also replaces quartz crystal resonators and operates from a 2.7 to 4.5V unregulated Li-Ion battery. More details on the devices are below. SiT1532/42 - 32.768 kHz MEMS oscillators in a 1.5 x 0.8 mm chip scale package (CSP), which is an industry first; SiT1533/43 - 32.768 kHz MEMS oscillators in a 2.0 x 1.2 mm package that is pin-compatible with quartz resonators; SiT1534/44 - programmable MEMS oscillators that support frequencies from 1 Hz to 32.768 kHz and are available in both the 1.5 x 0.8 mm CSP and the 2.0 x 1.2 mm packages. All of these devices offer many significant benefits over quartz, as listed below: Smallest board area - The CSP offers area savings of up to 85% compared to the 2012 package and 70% over the smallest quartz package that is sampling; More functionality in a true one-chip solution - The oscillator output replaces crystal resonators, eliminates the need for load capacitors, minimizes board area and also offers a more robust system startup in extreme temperatures; Excellent power savings - Supply current of only 0.75 micro-amps (typical) is 50% better than an equivalent quartz solution; Thinnest - 0.55mm is ideal for smartphones; NanoDrive(TM) - A unique, programmable, low swing output that minimizes power and directly interfaces to the oscillator /RTC circuit in the downstream processor or PMIC. Best frequency stability - +/-20 PPM at room temperature and +/-100 PPM over -40degC to +85degC ensures accurate time-keeping; Best robustness - 30 times better than quartz; Best reliability - 500 million hours MTBF (2 FIT), 15 times better than quartz. In addition to smartphones and tablets, the SiT15xx family is ideal for devices that require small size and low power such as fitness monitoring and watch products, medical monitoring and wellness devices, sport camcorders, wireless keypads and mouse devices.
