MEMS-based oscillator family aimed at Tablet PCs and E-Books
April 15, 2011 // Phil Ling
A complete portfolio of MEMS oscillators for Tablet PC and E-Book reader designs is now available from MSC. The solutions, which are based on SiTime's SiT8003 Low Power MEMS Oscillator platform, are claimed to be approximately 30% thinner than quartz and offer up to 10 times better robustness to shock and vibration.
The programmable MEMS oscillators can be configured for use with applications processors, USB2.0 transceivers, platform controller hubs (PCHs), HDMI SoCs, audio codecs and camera modules. The device features a low current consumption of only 3.5 mA in active mode and less than 5 µA in standby mode.
Any frequency between 1MHz and 110MHz with 5 decimal places of accuracy can be programmed. The SiT 8003 offers ±25 PPM frequency stability over -20ºC to +70ºC operating temperature range and is available in a tiny 2.5 mm x 2.0 mm package. Configurable operating voltages of 1.8, 2.5, 2.8 or 3.3V are available.
Samples of the various MEMS oscillators are usually available within 48 hours and production quantity lead times are said to currently be 3-5 weeks.

Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturer Ciseco has launched the Raspberry Pi ‘Wireless Inventors Kit’ (RasWIK), featuring 88 pieces to provide everything a Pi owner needs to follow a series of step-by-step projects or to create their own wireless devices, without the need for configuration or even writing code.
RasWIK has been designed to be highly accessible, demystifying the dark art of wireless and enabling anyone with basic computing skills to begin building wireless devices with a Raspberry Pi. You can create anything from a simple traffic light, to a battery monitor, or even a temperature gauge that sends data to the Xively IoT cloud so billions can access the data.This month, Ciseco is giving away twelve Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors kits, worth £49.99 each for EETimes Europe's readers to win.
And the winners are...
In our previous reader offer, Farsens was giving away five kits for EEtimes Europe readers to evaluate its FenixVortex, Kineo and X1 wireless, battery free sensor tags.
Lucky winners include Mr A. Neil from the UK, Mr. E. Delvaux from Belgium, Mr Lengal from the Czech Republic, Mr H. Bijlsma from the Netherlands, and Mr G. Pfaff from Germany. All should be receiving their packages soon. Lets wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
