SiTime, Bosch to Develop Next-Gen MEMS Timing for IoT

Nitin Dahad, EETimes, LONDON, Sept. 13, 2018 – MEMs-based silicon timing solutions provider SiTime Corp. announced a strategic technology partnership with Bosch to develop next-generation MEMS timing resonator products.

The CEO of SiTime, Rajesh Vashist, said, "Over the next decade, the 5G, IoT, and automotive markets will drive the growth of the timing industry by creating a 200-billion-unit opportunity. Automation, communications, and computing applications in these markets will require more features, higher accuracy, and reliability from timing components." He added, "Bosch's strong MEMS process capabilities are a foundation on which we can develop our next generation of higher-performance MEMS resonators."

"Stable, reliable MEMS timing devices are needed for successful operation of new, high-bandwidth 5G, IoT, and driver assistance systems," said Jens Fabrowsky, executive vice president, Automotive Electronics at Robert Bosch GmbH. "Without ultra-precise timing, the benefits and opportunities for next-generation systems will not be achieved. With Bosch's MEMS leadership and manufacturing excellence and SiTime's ground-breaking MEMS timing technology, this partnership will make possible unique new features and mission-critical services in 5G, IoT, and automotive applications."

Bosch has already manufactured more than a billion MEMS resonators for SiTime since 2009. Bosch says that it has been a global market leader in the MEMS sensor segment since 1995, selling more than 9.5 billion units. The company developed the manufacturing process behind its MEMS technology nearly 25 years ago, and it claims that more than every other smartphone worldwide uses a Bosch MEMS sensor.
