First Fully Integrated, Monolithic Cmos+Mems Oscillator Device

The frequency control market is largely dominated by quartz products, but silicon timing solutions have a strong value proposition for some sub-markets.

The Si504 is the first silicon oscillator from Silicon Labs. Manufactured with the CMEMS process (CMOS + MEMS), the crystal elements are replaced by micromachined semiconductor resonators.

CMEMS process consists in a monolithic integration of a CMOS circuit with Poly-SiGe (polycrystalline silicon-germanium) MEMS resonator structures.

The resonator is then vacuum encapsulated with a silicon cap using an eutectic wafer bonding process.

The Si504 is optimized to support high-volume, low-cost applications such as consumer electronics market.

This report will provide a complete teardown of the MEMS oscillator with:

  • Detailed photos
  • Material analysis
  • Schematic assembly description
  • Manufacturing Process Flow
  • In-depth manufacturing cost analysis
  • Supply chain evaluation
  • Selling price estimation

Cloud Object Storage is effectively infinitely scalable and boasts the lowest total costs. But cloud SLAs and T&Cs are traditionally optimized for huge customers like Netflix, so applications demanding better confidentiality or higher availability typically can’t reap the benefits of public cloud storage.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
