IDT Introduces World’s First Piezoelectric MEMS Oscillators for High-performance Applications

17 MAY 2012

Integrated Device Technology, Inc., the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced the world’s first CrystalFree™ piezoelectric MEMS (pMEMS™) LVDS / LVPECL oscillators for high-performance communications, consumer, cloud, and industrial applications. IDT’s new oscillators operate with substantially less than one picosecond of phase jitter in compact industry-standard packaging, making them an ideal replacement for traditional six-pin crystal oscillators (XOs).
The IDT 4M series high-performance LVDS / LVPECL oscillators leverage IDT’s patented CrystalFree pMEMS resonator technology, enabling IDT to rapidly factory-program the desired output frequency without the need to fine-tune expensive crystals. In addition, because the nominal resonator frequency of pMEMS is much higher than quartz crystal, 4M oscillators are able to achieve higher frequencies at lower cost without sacrificing critical performance. The 4M series is the first of a broad portfolio of MEMS-based devices from IDT that will provide customers with convenient, accurate, low-jitter timing references.
