SiTime surpasses MEMS production milestone of 100,000/week

August 31, 2007 — SiTime Corp., developer of MEMS-based timing solutions, says that its SiT8002 and SiT1 oscillator families are shipping at a production rate of more than 100,000 units per week. This, the company says, makes these products the top-selling MEMS-based oscillators worldwide.

SiTime says its SiT8002 is the world’s smallest programmable oscillator, which allows for fast-turn prototyping, and can be programmed to any frequency between 1 MHz – 125 MHz. The SiT1 fixed frequency oscillators are available in 173 common frequencies and are a low cost solution for high volume customers. Both oscillator products are offered in four package sizes down to 2.5 x 2.0 mm, and are highly reliable, mechanically robust, and low cost compared to competitive quartz solutions.

The products — and the milestone — represent a new MEMS industry that stands poised to replace a substantial portion of the 10 billion quartz-based oscillators produced annually.
