The DSC6000 family of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) oscillators from Microchip Technology is now in stock at Mouser Electronics. The ultra-small, ultra-low-power oscillators reduce footprint by up to 75 per cent and consume up to 50 percent less power than comparable quartz oscillators.

The MEMS oscillators are 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 oscillators feature an ultra-low standby power consumption of just 12 µA. In active mode, the DSC60xx devices consume as little as 1.3 mA, and the DSC61xx devices typically consume 3.0 mA.

The devices offer high stability of ±25 ppm or ±50 ppm over the industrial temperature range of minus 40 to 85 degrees Celsius.

They are 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.
