Clock and Timing
Being a disruptive technology over the century-old quartz oscillator, Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) based oscillators have received wide market adoption in recent years due to the reliability, short lead times and small package sizes. Microchip is the leader in this rapidly growing market and can help you identify solutions for your timing needs. We offer industry’s most complete MEMS-based timing solutions that include both single output oscillators that are drop-in replacements to the traditional quartz oscillators, and multiple output clock generators that can provide a highly-reliable and accurate reference clock to your system without the need of an external reference crystal.
Silicon MEMS-based timing devices offer high reliability (including AEC-Q100 certification for automotive use), wide operating temperatures (-55⁰C to 125⁰C), superb shock and vibration resistance, high accuracy (±10ppm) and small size (1.6mm x 1.2mm).
Featured Product: Industry’s Smallest Multi-Output MEMS Clock Generators
The DSC612/613 family of MEMS Clock Generators provide a true single-chip, multi-output solution for microcontroller-based systems. This flexible solution covers a wide frequency range without requiring an external crystal which saves power while reducing board space by up to 80 percent.
