Mouser stocks Microchip’s low-power DSC6000 MEMS oscillators

The DSC6000 family of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) oscillators from Microchip Technology, are now available from distributor Mouser Electronics.

The small, low-power oscillators reduce footprint by up to 75 per cent and consume up to 50 per cent less power than comparable quartz oscillators, says Mouser. The distributor claims to offer the newest semiconductors and components.

Microchip’s DSC6000 MEMS oscillators are the industry’s smallest MEMS MHz oscillators with the lowest power consumption over full frequency range of 2.0kHz to 100MHz. The single-output DSC60xx and DSC61xx MEMS oscillators feature a low standby power consumption of just 12-microA. In active mode, the DSC60xx devices consume as little as 1.3-mA, and the DSC61xx devices typically consume 3.0-mA. The devices offer high stability of ±25 or ±50ppm (parts per million) over the industrial temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees C.

Microchip’s DSC6000 family of MEMS oscillators is suitable for use as clock references in small, battery-powered solutions that require small size, low power consumption, and long-term reliability, such as wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The AEC-Q100-qualified devices are also suitable for automotive applications, such as rear-view cameras and infotainment systems.

Distributor Mouser strives to empower innovation among design engineers and buyers by delivering advanced technologies. It claims to stock the world’s widest selection of the latest semiconductors and electronic components for the newest design projects. Mouser Electronics’ website is continually updated and offers advanced search methods to help customers quickly locate inventory. also houses data sheets, supplier-specific reference designs, application notes, technical design information, and engineering tools.

Mouser Electronics is a subsidiary of TTI, part of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway family of companies. Mouser is an award-winning, authorised semiconductor and electronic component distributor, focused on rapid NPI (new product introductions) from its manufacturing partners for electronic design engineers and buyers. The global distributor’s website is available in multiple languages and currencies and features more than four million products from over 600 manufacturers. Mouser offers 22 support locations around the world, and ships globally to over 500,000 customers in 170 countries.
