Source: SiTimeWith the upcoming deployment rollouts for 5G, the growing demand from the internet of things (IoT) and the changing face of the automotive market to move autonomous and electric vehicles, the need for a next-generation of microelectromechancial systems (MEMS) resonator products is emerging.

Because of this, SiTime Corp. is working with Bosch to enable these devices that will help increase the speeds of 5G, expand the battery life of connected devices and increase the reliability of driver assistance systems in vehicles.

MEMS timing devices are currently found in millions of telecom, enterprise and consumer electronics products. Over the next decade, the market is set to grow substantially as automation, communications and computing applications grow and require more features, higher accuracy and reliability from timing components.

SiTime has more than 90 percent of the MEMS timing market, having shipped over a billion units and is partnering with Intel Corp. to drive timing in 5G applications. Bosch has sold more than 9.5 billion MEMS sensors making it one of the leaders in the market.
