Electronic components distributor Mouser Electronics is now stocking the energy-saving DSC6000 family of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) oscillators from Microchip Technology. These ultra-small, ultra-low-power oscillators can reduce component footprint by up to 75 per cent and consume up to 50 per cent less power than comparable quartz oscillators.
Microchip’s DSC6000 MEMS oscillators are seen as the industry’s smallest MEMS MHz oscillators with the lowest power consumption over full frequency range of 2kHz to 100MHz. The single-output DSC60xx and DSC61xx MEMS oscillators feature an ultra-low standby power consumption of just 12µA — in active mode, the DSC60xx devices consume as little as 1.3mA, and the DSC61xx devices typically consume 3.0mA. The devices offer high stability of ±25ppm or ±50ppm over the industrial temperature range of -40 to 85degC.
These oscillators is suitable for use as clock references in small, battery-powered solutions that require small size, low power consumption, and long-term reliability, such as wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The AEC-Q100-qualified devices are also ideal for automotive applications, such as rearview cameras and infotainment systems.
