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.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
The DDV-IP is a two-wheeled self-balancing robot that can deliver cold beverages to thirsty folks on hot summer days. A wireless RF remote enables manual control of the device beyond the act of self-balancing. All of the features of the DDV-IP result in an effective delivery vehicle while providing entertainment to the user.
Eric Doster of iFixit talks about the most surprising aspect of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 teardown. In a presentation at Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, iFixit gave the Surface Pro 3 a score of one (out of a possible 10) for repairability.
