SiTime Corporation hasannounced that it will provide its precision timing products to Lattice Semiconductor, the low power programmable leader. The SiTime devices, a Cascade™ MEMS-based Clock-System-on-a-Chip (ClkSoC™) and an Emerald OCXO or Elite X™ Super-TCXO®, are incorporated into Lattice’s new synchronization hardware development platform.
“At Lattice, delivering customer-centric, power-efficient FPGA innovation with flexibility, scalability, and security is a top priority,” said Matt Dobrodziej, Vice President of Segment Marketing and Business Development, Lattice Semiconductor. “We are further strengthening our partner ecosystem with this collaboration with SiTime to demonstrate the precision timing capabilities of Lattice FPGAs. This innovation will enable our customers with more ways to develop and deploy low latency, secure, and synchronized systems powered by our industry-leading FPGA technology.”

“Lattice and SiTime share a common objective – using the power of programmability to solve customer problems and accelerate network deployment,” said Lionel Bonnot, EVP Worldwide Sales and Business Development at SiTime. “Higher speeds, lower latency and distributed computing are driving new deployment architectures where equipment is subjected to environmental stressors such as shock, vibration, and temperature changes. These deployments require a new timing technology paradigm, and SiTime delivers.”

Key features of the Cascade SiT95141 Clock-System-on-Chip timing family include:

  1. Integrated MEMS resonator, enabling designers to create a clock-system-on-chip and eliminate quality and reliability issues associated with traditional quartz-based clocks;
  2. Four PLLs (clock domains) and eleven outputs;
  3. DCO mode with 0.005-ppb resolution;
  4. Four inputs, up to ten outputs;
  5. Wide frequency range from 8 kHz to 2.1 GHz;
  6. Support for IEEE 1588, ITU-T G.8262.1 and JESD204B;
  7. Rich set of programmable features in a small 9- x 9-mm package.
