Devices ranging from microcontroller units (MCUs) to field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) permeate our connected world. To operate properly, such devices require clocks to synchronize the data they process, transmit, and receive.

Bulk-acoustic-wave (BAW) technology enables the fabrication of compact, precise, reliable clocks with programmable frequencies, eliminating the need to stock multiple crystals operating at different fixed frequencies. BAW resonators have a key and growing role to play in ensuring seamless communications between mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) devices and cloud-computing resources.
