MEMS Oscillator Family Adds Industrial Temperature Parts
Tue, 06/09/2009 - 7:15am
Discera has expanded its PureSilicon product offering to include industrial temperature ranges with ±50 ppm and ± 25ppm frequency stability. These MEMS oscillators are pin-compatible with popular crystal oscillators and have low operating current specs (3 mA typ. at 40 MHz), while consuming 1 µA in standby mode. Discera oscillators are also practically impervious to shock, vibration and fractures that can affect crystal parts. The combination of reliability and low power consumption make MEMS oscillators appropriate for portable and battery operated applications. PureSilicon oscillators are available in 2.5 mm x 2.0mm, 3.2 mm x 2.5 mm, 5.0 mm x 3.2 mm and 7.0 mm x 5.0 mm plastic packages. With +/-25ppm frequency stability over the industrial temperature range, the 1.8 V, DSC1018 device in a 5.0 mm x 3.2 mm package is priced at $1.10/ea. in 1,000 piece quantities.
