Team Accelerates 5G & IoT MEMS Timing

SiTime and Bosch are partnering to accelerate innovation in micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) timing. SiTime will work with Bosch to develop processes for next-generation MEMS resonator products. Reportedly, MEMS resonators are the heartbeat of 5G, IoT, and automotive electronics, and will enable the higher speeds of 5G, long battery life of IoT devices. and increased reliability of driver assistance systems in automotive. Bosch will utilize its expertise in MEMS manufacturing to produce these resonators for SiTime and ensure availability of high-volume capacity.

 

"Stable, reliable MEMS timing devices are needed for successful operation of new, high-bandwidth 5G, IoT and driver assistance systems," said Jens Fabrowsky, executive vice president, Automotive Electronics at Robert Bosch GmbH. "Without ultra-precise timing, the benefits and opportunities for next generation systems will not be achieved. With Bosch's MEMS leadership and manufacturing excellence, and SiTime's groundbreaking MEMS timing technology, this partnership will make possible unique new features and mission-critical services in 5G, IoT, and automotive applications."
