Microchip introduces DSC 6000 MEMS oscillators

September 28, 2016 — Microchip Technology Inc., a provider of microcontroller, mixed-signal, analog and Flash-IP solutions, has announced the DSC6000 family of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) oscillators.  The DSC6000 is a small MEMS MHz oscillator with low power consumption over full frequency range of 2KHz to 100MHz.

The DSC6000 MEMS oscillators are excellent choices for use as clock references in small, battery-powered devices such as wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) devices in which small size, low power consumption, and reliability are paramount. They also meet the mechanical durability and reliability requirements within Automotive Electronics Council standard Q100 (AEC-Q100), so they are well suited for under-hood applications as well.

Microchip's DSC6000 oscillators are housed in industry standard 4-pin DFN packages ranging from as small as 1.6 x 1.2 mm up to 7 x 5 mm, and consume just 1.3 mA (typical). They also have a maximum operating temperature range of -40oC to +85oC and +/-25 ppm maximum drift over this range.

The DSC60xx and DSC61xx are in production today and available now in 10K quantities. Package options include: 1.6 x 1.2 mm; 2.0 x 1.6 mm; 2.5 x 2.0 mm in 4-pin VLGA; and 3.2 x 2.5 mm in 4-pin VDFN.
