Maximize Efficiency and Lower Qualification Costs

In the last paper, SiTime highlighted the total cost of ownership as it relates to oscillator performance and features. However, some of the largest cost savings come from the business and supply chain benefits of programmable MEMS oscillators. Qualifying components is one cost to consider, since it can amount to tens of thousands of dollars, for a derivative product using a similar component and hundreds of thousands of dollars for a brand-new component.

Component qualification is the process of testing electronic parts to ensure they meet specific requirements before they are integrated into a larger system or product. It’s an important step in the development of electronic products since parts that fail to meet the necessary standards can compromise the safety, reliability, and functionality of the entire system. But what if end-product manufacturers could skip this costly and time-consuming process? In addition to saving resources, how much would be gained by getting to market faster?
