Microchip Releases New Low Power DSC6000 Family of MEMS Oscillators
MEMS Oscillators Provide Semiconductor-Grade Reliability and Superb Frequency Stability Over a Wide Temperature Range
Microchip have announced the availability of the DSC6000 family of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) oscillators.
The new family is the industry’s smallest MEMS MHz oscillator with the lowest power consumption over
full frequency range of 2 KHz to 100 MHz.
The DSC6000 MEMS oscillators are excellent choices for use as clock references in small,
battery-powered devices such as wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) devices in which small size,
low power consumption, and long-term reliability are paramount. They also meet the
stringent mechanical durability and reliability requirements within
Automotive Electronics Council standard Q100 (AEC-Q100), so they are well suited for
under-hood applications as well.
Microchip’s DSC6000 oscillators are housed in industry standard 4-pin DFN packages ranging
from as small as 1.6 x 1.2 mm up to 7 x 5 mm, and consume just 1.3 mA (typical)-less than
half the current consumption of the lowest-power quartz-based oscillators.
They also have a maximum operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C and
+/-25 ppm maximum drift over this range. They can sustain 500 times more shock and
five times more vibration than a quartz oscillator, ensuring rock-solid stability
in most operating environments.
“MEMS oscillators have enormous benefits over traditional quartz-based oscillators,
especially as the products in which they are used become smaller and lighter,
as well as demand small device footprints, low power consumption,
and precision timing,” said Rami Kanama, vice president of Microchip’s Timing and Communications Group.
“Microchip offers the industry’s most complete MEMS-based timing solutions.
The DSC6000 family is the latest addition to our MEMS oscillator and
MEMS clock generator families that provide the best-in-class combination of low power and
high performance in a tiny package, ideal for IoT and mobile applications.”
Microchip’s ClockWorks® online configuration tool allows designers
to easily select the right oscillator in terms of frequency, package size, ppm and
temperature range and then request complimentary samples of that oscillator through the same tool.
The TimeFlash Field Programming Kit provides instant frequency generation
by fusing the One-Time Programmable (OTP) memory in a blank DSC6000 part
that can be ordered separately.
