SiTime Corporation has introduced a new family of µPower MEMS Oscillators for the wearable, IoT and mobile markets. Compared to an equivalent quartz oscillator the SiT8021 consumes 90% less power, is 40% smaller and 70% lighter. These best in class specifications enable the longest battery life as well as the smallest size and weight for smart watches, fitness bands, tablets, smart phones, portable audio and accessories.

The devices use the SiTime MEMs TempFlat technology which gives excellent stability against temperature changes without the need for temperature sensing and compensation networks.

Key features of the SiT8021 MEMs oscillators:
• Supply current 100 μA
• 1.5 mm x 0.8 mm package
• A mass of 1.28 mg
• Height of 0.55 mm
• 1 to 26 MHz output frequency with 6 decimal places of accuracy
• Operating temperature from -40°C to +85°C
• ±100 PPM frequency stability
• 1.8V operation for battery powered applications
• Programmable output drive to reduce EMI or drive multiple loads
• Reliability of 1140 million hours MTBF (< 1 FIT)
• High shock & vibration resistance

Samples of the SiT8021 are available now for high volume designs. General sampling and mass production is targeted for Q3 2015. Pricing is available upon request.
