SiTime Corporation announced it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Aura Semiconductor to acquire its clock products and license all of its clock IP. This is an all-cash transaction, comprised of fixed payments totaling $148 million, and earnouts capped at $120 million. The transaction is expected to close by the end of 2023. SiTime will…
SiTime Corporation announced the SiTime Epoch Platform, designed to solve the most complex timing issues in electronics and disrupt 100-year-old quartz-based technology. The SiTime Epoch Platform is a MEMS-based, oven-controlled oscillator (OCXO) that delivers an ultra-stable clock to data center and network infrastructure equipment, unlocking a cumulative $2 billion served addressable market (SAM) in the next decade.…
Our 2023 5G, Wired, & Wireless Handbook is now available in ebook form. Download your copy today. It started on a cold January day with an editorial call. A month later, the abstracts came in. After another month, the manuscripts came in. Then came the editing and some back-and-forth with the authors. Next, it was…
5G’s high speeds place extreme demands on the components that maintain accurate time. Compliance with industry timing standards calls for accuracy in the face of temperature changes, shock, and vibration.
Frequency synchronization in the radio access network (RAN) minimizes disturbances at the air interface, ensures mobile handover between radio base stations, and fulfills legal and regulatory requirements associated with a frequency license.
Featuring 15 articles, the 2022 5G Handbook looks at private networks, timing, connectivity, latency, mmWaves, test, and other topics.
The Elite X Super-TCXO from SiTime provides stable timing from 1 MHz to 60 MHz for edge computing, vehicles, and cellular base stations.
IEEE 1588 PTP and SyncE protocols keep radio units, switches, and distribution units in sync.
The SiT5008 from SiTime goes to 60 MHz, draws 3.5 mA, and features a standby mode.
SiTime has entered the resonator market with a MEMs device that can be integrated into semiconductor devices and oscillator modules.
