SiTime Corp.'sSiT9107 is a high frequency,
programmable, differential oscillator for networking, storage and industrial
applications. The SiT9107 is used in high performance applications such as
Ethernet Switches, Solid-State Drives (SSD), Optical Line Terminals (OLT), RAID
controllers and Host Bus Adapters (HBA), Servers, Memories and PCIe-based
embedded applications. The SiT9107 supports common protocols such as Gigabit
and 10 Gigabit Ethernet, SAS, SATA, DDR, microprocessor and FPGA clocking.
The key features of the SiT9107:
Wide frequency range (220 to 800 MHz) that supports a
large range of applications
Configurable output signaling level, LVPECL, LVDS,
CML, HCSL, eliminates need for external level translators
Frequency stability, Â±10, Â±15, Â±20, Â±25 and Â±50 PPM
Up to 5 decimal
places of frequency accuracy, provides most precise, customized clock
1.8V operating voltage supports newer ASSPs, while 2.5
and 3.3V are also available.
Available in industry standard footprints (5.0 x 3.2 and
7.0x5.0 mm) for easy replacement of existing quartz-based solutions.
The SiT9107 is available now in volume production. The devices are priced at
$7.13 in 1000 units for frequencies up to 500 MHz, 50 PPM stability, commercial
temperature range in a 5.0 x 3.2 package.
During a teardown of the iPad Air and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Show in Schaumburg, Ill., an engineer showed this "inflammatory" video about the dangers of maliciously mishandling lithium-ion batteries.
The Window Watcher stops the burglar before he does damage or enters the house. House alarm service companies set off alarms and call the service only after the burglar has damaged and entered the house.
