SiTime Extends Lifetime Warranty for MEMS Timing Devices

In a testament to the durability of its MEMS oscillators and clock generators, SiTime has decided to extend a lifetime warranty that the devices will conform to specifications for the life of the system.

“Since 2007, SiTime has shipped 200 million units of our silicon MEMS timing solutions with zero MEMS failures. The outstanding quality and reliability of SiTime’s products is due to two unique factors – single crystal silicon material and the EpiSeal manufacturing process. Unlike other manufacturers who use poly crystalline silicon and oxides, SiTime constructs the MEMS resonator from pure single crystal silicon, which ensures that the performance of the resonator does not change with time. The EpiSeal process anneals the MEMS resonator and encapsulates it in a perfectly clean vacuum for maximum durability and reliability,” said Piyush Sevalia, executive vice president of marketing at SiTime. “SiTime’s reliability is two orders of magnitude, 100 times better than quartz."
