MEMS oscillator aimed at wearable applications



MEMS specialist SiTime is addressing opportunities in the wearables and mobile markets with a new family of µPower MEMS oscillators. The first part to be announced, the SiT8021, is said to consume 90% less power than a quartz device, as well as being 40% smaller and 70% lighter.

MEMS specialist SiTime is addressing opportunities in the wearables and mobile markets with a new family of µPower MEMS oscillators. The first part to be announced, the SiT8021, is said to consume 90% less power than a quartz device, as well as being 40% smaller and 70% lighter.

Piyush Sevalia, executive vp of marketing at SiTime, said: "SiTime has used revolutionary technologies to deliver the µPower family of MHz MEMS oscillators. This new family breaks through the limitation of quartz technology and enables smaller electronic devices with dramatically longer battery life."

The SiT8021 is said to draw 100µA and to produce an output frequency in the range from 1MHz to 26MHz, with six decimal places of accuracy and a frequency stability of ±100ppm. Supplied in a package measuring 1.5 x 0.8mm, the oscillator runs from a 1.8V supply.

General sampling and mass production of the device is targeted for Q3 2015.
