MEMS Oscillators by IDT

MEMS oscillators are rapidly replacing legacy quartz based oscillators. By adopting standard semiconductor processes and high volume plastic packaging, IDT has significantly improved upon the lead time and availability of oscillator procurement. Utilizing MEMS processing and fabrication, delivery concerns that have plagued the quartz industry for decades is no longer an issue. With full factory configurability, standard as well as custom frequencies can now ship within 3 to 4 weeks of order placement.

IDT offers an extensive portfolio of MEMS oscillators to meet the requirements of your application. Three main product families include: standard MEMS oscillators with <1ps of phase jitter  for general purpose applications, enhanced MEMS oscillators with multiple outputs and frequencies on a single chip to simplify the bill of materials, and performance MEMS oscillators with ultra-low jitter and frequency margining capability for 10GbE  and other high-performance applications.
