SUNNYVALE, Calif. – January 29, 2014 – SiTime Corporation, an analog semiconductor company that is revolutionizing the timing market, today announced that all of SiTime’s MEMS oscillators and clock generators will be covered by a lifetime warranty. SiTime’s unique warranty offers customers greater assurance by guaranteeing that all timing components from SiTime will be free from defects and conform to specifications for the life of the system.
“Since 2007, SiTime has shipped 200 million units of our silicon MEMS timing solutions with zero MEMS failures. The outstanding quality and reliability of SiTime’s products is due to two unique factors – single crystal silicon material and the EpiSealTM manufacturing process. Unlike other manufacturers who use poly crystalline silicon and oxides, SiTime constructs the MEMS resonator from pure single crystal silicon, which ensures that the performance of the resonator does not change with time. The EpiSeal process anneals the MEMS resonator and encapsulates it in a perfectly clean vacuum for maximum durability and reliability,” said Piyush Sevalia, executive vice president of marketing at SiTime. “SiTime’s reliability is two orders of magnitude, 100 times better than quartz. This allows SiTime to be the only timing supplier to offer a lifetime warranty and is one more way in which SiTime is revolutionizing the $5 billion timing industry.”
