New MEMS Timing device

California-based company SiTime has recently presented a MEMS-based timing device, a Voltage Controlled MEMS Oscillator (VCMO)

Combined with an ASIC containing a phase-locked loop, the device provides:
  • Frequency between 1 and 110MHz
  • Pull ranges of ±30 PPM, ±60 PPM, ±120 PPM or ±240 PPM
  • Operating voltages of 1.8V, 2.5V, 2.8V or 3.3V
  • Frequency tolerance of ±25 PPM, ±30 PPM, ±50 PPM and ±100 PPM
