SiTime is First to Offer Complete Oscillator Solutions for Tablet PCs and E-Book Readers

Silicon MEMS Timing Solutions Are Smallest, Thinnest, Shock and Vibration Proof

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/11/11 -- SiTime Corporation, the leader in MEMS-based silicon timing solutions, today announced the availability of a complete portfolio of MEMS oscillators for Tablet PCs and E-Book Readers. These solutions, all of which are based on SiTime's SiT8003 Low Power MEMS Oscillator platform, provide clocking for every major functional block in the Tablet PC and E-Book Reader. The SiT8003 is 30% thinner than quartz and offers 10 times better robustness to shock and vibration, improving the aesthetics and lifespan of the Tablet PC and E-book Readers.

"Tablet PCs and E-Book Readers are one of the fastest growing segments in the electronics industry and are expected to ship over 200 Million units by 2014. SiTime's low-power, programmable MEMS oscillators already provide the timing reference for many Tablet PCs and E-Book Readers," said Piyush Sevalia, SiTime's vice president of marketing. "Exciting, high-volume applications such as Tablet PCs have rapidly adopted SiTime's Silicon MEMS timing solutions over legacy quartz products, as our solutions offer the best size and robustness, unprecedented flexibility, industry-leading 3-5 week lead times and the lowest cost of ownership."

SiTime's SiT8003 low-power programmable MEMS oscillator can be configured to drive many different devices within a Tablet PC and E-Book Reader. Some common configurations are highlighted below:

  • SiT8003AC-12-18S-26.00000 for the Applications Processor and USB2.0 transceiver
  • SiT8003AC-12-33S-14.31800 for the Platform Controller Hub (PCH) chip
  • SiT8003AC-12-33S-22.57920 for the HDMI SOC
  • SiT8003AC-12-33S-24.57600 for the audio CODECs
  • SiT8003AC-12-33S-27.00000 for the camera module

The SiT8003 offers the best combination of low power, small size and high performance for Tablet PC and E-Book Reader designs. The device consumes 3.5mA in active mode and less than 5µA in standby mode, offers ±25PPM frequency stability over -20ºC to 70ºC operating temperature and is available in a tiny, 2.5x2.0mm package.

SiTime's SiT8003 offers configurable rise and fall times at no additional cost. By controlling the rise and fall times of the various clocks within the system, the designer reduces system EMI and can meet environmental compliance more easily, cost-effectively and without any design changes.

Additional features and benefits of the SiT8003 include:

  • Any frequency between 1 and 110 MHz with 5 decimal places of accuracy. A customized clock frequency can be used for increased performance (over-clocking) or cheaper testability
  • Configurable operating voltage, 1.8, 2.5, 2.8 or 3.3V.
  • Industrial (-40 to +85 °C) and extended commercial (-20 to +70 °C) temperature range
  • 4 industry-standard packages, enabling replacement of quartz oscillators with no design changes.
  • The world's shortest lead times -- samples shipments in 24-48 hours and production lead times of 3-5 weeks.

The devices are available in production now, and pricing is available upon request.

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
