Intel to Collaborate with SiTime on MEMS Timing for 5G Modems


Intel and SiTime Corporation*, a provider of MEMS timing solutions, have
announced that they will work together on robust, tiny and low-power
microelectromechanical (MEMS) timing solutions for Intel's 5G modem
platforms. SiTime's MEMS solutions provide enhanced reliability and
withstand environmental stressors. They are used in consumer
electronics, networking and telecom infrastructure, healthcare, and
industrial and automotive applications.

"Intel's modem technology and SiTime's MEMS timing solutions will
help customers for our 5G modems gain high levels of reliability and to
truly take advantage of the performance and capacity that 5G will bring."

Dr. Cormac Conroy, corporate vice president and general manager of the
Communication and Devices Group at Intel Corporation.

Why It's Important: In partnership with SiTime, Intel will
be able to offer customers MEMS timing solutions that enable modems to
better withstand vibration, shock and rapid temperature changes, which
can interrupt the timing signal. These MEMS solutions with a MHz
resonator design use substantially less power than legacy quartz
solutions and can run longer and will meet the high-performance
requirements of Intel 5G modem platforms. Intel 5G platforms will become
available in 2019.

Who It's For: The collaboration will deliver solutions to
customers seeking more reliable 5G connectivity in phones and other
