In general, silicon oscillators are characterized as oscillators in which a quartz resonator is not used as a reference clock. Silicon oscillators can be equipped with MEMS-based resonators or other types of clock generation. Our silicon oscillators function similarly to the oscillators known in the conventional terminology as MEMS. Additionally, our silicon oscillators feature a silicon-based resonator that is used for clocking the oscillator ICs.
PETERMANN-TECHNIK offers the broadest portfolio of SMD silicon oscillators which are recommended for new application design or for the replacement of quartz and MEMS based XOs. These highly innovative silicon-oscillator solutions represent 100% pin-to-pin, drop-in replacement to existing quartz and MEMS oscillators and feature such main advantages as low-cost pricing, lower power consumption, extremely low aging rate, excellent jitter performance and outstanding long-time reliability. The variety of the SMD silicon oscillators combined with our in-depth engineering services will inspire you.
