Discera ships application programmable MEMS oscillators

March 30, 2011 – Business Wire — Discera Inc., silicon timing product maker, launched high-performance DSC21XX I2C and DSC22XX SPI application programmable MEMS oscillators.

These oscillators are available in single- and dual-output configurations with fully programmable output frequencies and drive strength.

With 300 femtosecond RMS phase jitter and 10ppm frequency stability, these are the highest performance programmable silicon-based oscillators to enter production, claims Discera.

Ultra-flexible low-jitter oscillators reduce development and lead times across the electronics industry, said Discera CEO Bruce Diamond, "The DSC21XX and DSC22XX oscillators use MEMS technology to deliver better performance than fixed frequency oscillators with flexibility and reliability," he added.

The DSC21XX and DSC22XX oscillators support various single and dual output CMOS, LVPECL, LVDS, and HCSL configurations. Full field programmability of these oscillators over industry standard interfaces allows a single part to serve as the timing reference for different applications or product configurations. This programmability also enables real-time clock-rate and drive strength adjustment to test system limits or optimize performance for any application. The DSC21XX and DSC22XX fit into flexible FPGA- and CPLD-based designs.
