The MEMS oscillator enables single qualification configurations for industrial and medical electronics applications
Accelerating time to revenue and simplifying inventory management is the newly enhanced SiT8008 low-power MEMS oscillator by SiTime that can now operate at any voltage between 1.62V and 3.63V. With this and additional programmable features such as frequency and drive strength programmability, the SiT8008 offers several possible configurations for industrial and medical applications such as factory automation, seismic sensing and data acquisition.
Along with continuous voltage operation, the SiT8008 also offers industry-leading resilience and reliability, a wide programmable frequency range with six decimals of accuracy, low power consumption, small package size and short lead times.
“Traditional oscillators are usually configured for specific frequencies and operation at one of 1.8V, 2.5V, or 3.3V voltages. Each configuration then requires a separate component qualification and will need to be stocked in inventory. On the other hand, simplicity is the name of the game with the SiT8008. Even if a customer uses multiple oscillator configurations, only one component qualification is required, reducing the time burden on valuable engineering resources,” said Piyush Sevalia, executive vice president of marketing at SiTime. “The SiT8008’s ability to operate at any voltage between 1.62V and 3.63V further simplifies system design – a customer can choose the voltage rail already available in the system rather than design a new one, which can also reduce component count.”
“Digi-Key is excited to offer additional value to our customers with custom programmed MEMS timing solutions from SiTime,” said David Stein, Vice President of Global Supplier Management at Digi-Key Electronics. “Customers can now order a continuous voltage option of the popular SiTime low power MEMS oscillator, SiT8008, programmed and ships in as fast as 48 hours. This continuous voltage feature reduces qualification requirements across a customer’s various applications, enabling faster time-to-market.”
SiT8008 is available for sampling and in low-volume production quantities from Digi-Key now.
