Electronics Semiconductors clock clock generator generator MEMs MEMS

MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY DSC613 MEMS clock generator eliminates the need for an external crystal by integrating a low-power and high-stability Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) resonator. Device can replace up to three crystals and oscillators on a board, reducing timing component board space by up to 80%. Product family is a true single-chip solution that integrates a MEMS resonator and two low-power Phase-Locked Loops (PLLs) into a 6-pin DFN package as small as 1.6 mm x 1.2 mm. Compact package size and extensive frequency flexibility makes devices well suited for compact designs that require low-power operation.
