SiTime enters smartphone market with first MEMS oscillator

SiTime Corporation, one of the fastest growing semiconductor companies, today introduced the SiT15xx family of 32 kHz MEMS oscillators that are intended to 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. SiTime claims the new device will offer area savings of 85%, cut power by 50% and provide 15 times more reliability.

SiTime intends for the SiT153x family to replace quartz crystal resonators and operates from a 1.2V to 3.63V regulated power supply.The SiT154x family would also replace quartz crystal resonators and operates from a 2.7 to 4.5V unregulated Li-Ion battery.

"SiTime’s silicon MEMS and analog technology deliver innovative timing solutions that leapfrog decades of quartz industry development. Large infrastructure and consumer electronics companies have already adopted SiTime’s solutions and are profiting from our remarkable combination of highest performance, lowest cost and best reliability," said Rajesh Vashist, CEO of SiTime. "Now, we are bringing these exceptional benefits to the booming mobile market. Our focus, passion and execution has allowed us to get 80% share of the MEMS timing market and with the new SiT15xx family, we continue to extend our lead."

In addition to smartphones and tablets, the SiT15xx family is intended 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.
