SiTime Releases the SiT5008 Temperature-Compensated, Silicon MEMS Oscillator

SiTime announced the release of the SiT5008 temperature-compensated silicon MEMS oscillator (TCXO).

The TCXO is meant to work within connected consumer and IoT device that include Internet-connected audio-video, over-the-top streaming devices, industrial smart meters, and low-power, wireless connectivity devices.

Similarly to other SiTime products, the SiT5008 features programmability, reliability, and environmental resilience.

Per a company press release, features of the SiT5008 include the following:

  • Any frequency between 10 MHz and 60 MHz accurate to 6 decimals

  • ±2 ppm to ±10 ppm frequency stability

  • Operating temperature from -40 to +85°C

  • Low power consumption of 3.5 mA typical at 1.8 V

  • Standby mode for longer battery life

  • LVCMOS output

  • Industry-standard 2.5 x 2.0 mm x mm package, 100% pin-compatible with quartz devices

  • RoHS and REACH compliant, Pb-free, Halogen-free, and Antimony-free
