Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) use tiny oscillating bars to create timing chips that aim to be cheaper and smaller than traditional quartz crystals--with SiTime taking an 85 percent market share. Look for mobile devices and even AC powered equipment to switch to MEMS oscillators en masse over the next five years. R.C.J.
SiTime Corporation, the industry leader in MEMS-based analog semiconductor solutions, today announced that it has 85% share of the MEMS-based timing market, according to a recent report from Yole Développement, a leading MEMS technology consulting firm. The report also forecasted that the MEMS-based timing market will grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 80% from 2010 to 2015.
