Quartz loses out to MEMS resonators

Semiconductor company SiTime Corp. has introduced its TempFlat MEMS technology. Unlike MEMS oscillators that stabilise the output frequency over temperature by using compensation circuitry, the TempFlat MEMS eliminates temperature compensation.

"Most recently, we entered the fast-growing smartphone market with our TempFlat MEMS-based 32kHz oscillators," said Rajesh Vashist, CEO of SiTime. "In 2011, SiTime demonstrated 100 PPB (parts per billion) stability with our high-performance temperature compensation. With TempFlat MEMS, which is 30 times better than SiTime's prior resonators, we can get to 5 PPB oscillators for Stratum 3E timing in base stations, small cells and optical networking. SiTime is now uniquely able to service all segments of the electronics industry."
