Automotive Timing Solutions

Automotive evolution is proceeding at a blistering pace. Advanced features like autonomous driving, ADAS and in-vehicle Ethernet require highly-reliable timing devices with robust performance and tight stability under harsh environments. The demand for timing devices will soon be over 100 devices per vehicle. Microchip offers the industry’s most reliable and robust clock and oscillator family by leveraging cutting-edge MEMS technology, advanced Phase-locked Loop (PLL) design and semiconductor packaging.

Key Features

  • Best quality and reliability: AEC-Q100 qualified, 10 times lower DPPM than crystal oscillators
  • Wide operation temperature range: -40° to 125°C, meeting automotive grade 1
  • Superb shocking and vibration immunity: 500 times the shock tolerance and five times the vibration tolerance of crystal oscillators
  • Smallest size: 1.6 x 1.2 mm, saving 50% board space
  • Multiple output replaces up to four crystals/oscillators, reduces BOM cost

Key Applications

  • Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)
  • Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR)
  • Autonomous driving
  • Infotainment systems
  • In-vehicle Ethernet
  • Engine control modules
  • Instrument cluster
