Advanced MHz MEMS solutions guide available from Abracon

Abracon, LLC. (Abracon), a leading global manufacturer of frequency control, signal conditioning, clocking and magnetic components, announces availability of the Advanced MEMS Timing Solutions Guide developed to assist customers in their selection of advanced oscillator products using microelectro-mechanical systems (MEMS). Abracon’s timing products using MEMS technology offer inherent benefits over quartz crystals including miniaturization, resistance to shock and vibration and extended operating temperature range while maintaining good frequency stability. Ideal for applications requiring a compact footprint, extended durability and wide temperature operation such as wearables, IoT, industrial, transportation, communications, industrial computing, networking and lighting.

The solutions guide showcases Abracon’s low power ASTMLP series of MEMS oscillators drawing less than 5mA for power sensitive applications. Extended temperature applications such as industrial can use the ASTMHT series optimized for -55C to +125C operating range. The noise and jitter optimized ASTMUP series supports communications protocols such as SATA, SAS, Fibre Channel, Passive Optical Networks, EPON, 10G-EPON, GPON, 10G-PON, Ethernet, 1G, 10GBASE-T/KR/LR/SR, FCoE, and PCI Express.

“The market for MEMS technology has grown exponentially in the last 3 years,” says Juan Conchas, Director of Marketing for Abracon. “MEMS is now a significant part of the clock and timing ecosystem and Abracon has become one of the recognized market leaders.”

“Abracon’s MEMS offering is comprehensive, taking advantage of all the benefits of the technology,” comments Syed Raza. “Each product line is optimized for small size, low power or low phase jitter, meeting applications requirements in a diversity of markets.”

Abracon MEMS oscillators are available in standard footprints from 5.0×7.0mm to 2.0×1.6mm depending on configuration. All devices are available through any of Abracon’s franchised distributors. View the solutions guide here.
