Three Advantages of MEMS Timing Technology in Industrial Automation Applications

Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology has provided the foundation for transformational change in the electronics industry. In timing components, MEMS technology enables superior performance compared to traditional quartz oscillators in key areas such as greater stability, far higher shock and vibration resistance, higher reliability, and smaller size.And the technology is proven: SiTime, which pioneered the application of MEMS technology to timing components, has shipped more than 3 billion MEMS-based oscillators.

This white paper describes in detail:• The characteristics of industrial environments that affect the operation of traditional quartz timing components• The role of timing in industrial automation equipment• The three advantages of SiTime MEMS timing components in industrial applications: reliability, easier EMC compliance, and programmability.
