Programmable Oscillators Set Power Benchmark

Promising to extend battery life in portable apps, the SiT800x family of programmable oscillators lay claim to delivering the industry’s lowest power consumption and fastest start-up time. The oscillator packages sport standard footprints, making them viable as drop-in replacements for quartz devices. The family includes the SiT8003 low-power oscillator, SiT8003XT measuring 0.25-mm thick, and the SiT8033 dual-frequency oscillator. Each specifies a power consumption in active and standby modes of less than 3.5 mA and 10 ?A, respectively, and a start-up time of less than 3 ms. To enable customization, they are programmable to operate at 1.8V, 2.5V, 2.8V, or 3.3V and at frequencies from 1 MHz to 110 MHz. The trio will be available for sampling in mid-February and production quantities will be available in late March. SITIME CORP., Sunnyvale, CA. (408) 328-4400.
