Low power TCXO accelerates development through customisation

MEMS timing specialist, SiTime, announces the SiT5008 temperature-compensated silicon MEMS oscillator (TCXO). It is intended for connected consumer and IoT devices such as internet-connected audio-video, over-the-top streaming devices, industrial smart meters, and other devices that use low power wireless connectivity.

The SiT5008 offers programmable features, high reliability, and environmental resilience in a small package.

It is also an example of SiTime’s rapid release strategy, where the company develops up to 15 product derivatives from a single base platform.

“Each derivative has customised features and solves unique timing problems for customers,” explained Piyush Sevalia, executive vice president of marketing of SiTime.

The small, low power SiT5008 MEMS TCXO delivers any frequency between 10 and 60MHz accurate to six decimals and exhibits ±2 ppm to ±10 ppm frequency stability.

The TCXO has an LVCMOS output and an operating temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees C. It has a low power consumption of 3.5mA typical at 1.8V and features a standby mode for longer battery life.

The SiT5008 MEMS TCXO is supplied in an industry-standard 2.5 x 2.0mm package and is 100 per cent pin-compatible with quartz devices.

It is also RoHS and REACH-compliant, Pb-free, halogen-free, and antimony-free.

The SiT5008 TCXO is available in production now.

SiTime is a market leader in silicon MEMS timing. Its programmable solutions offer a rich feature set that enables customers to differentiate their products with higher performance, smaller size, lower power, and better reliability. The company has shipped over two billion devices.
