The precision timing technology is critical in aerospace and defense applications where extreme conditions are the norm.
Timing is a major source of performance challenges during system verification, qualification, and field operation in aerospace-defense electronics. As a result, a significant amount of engineering time is spent on troubleshooting and negotiating waivers. That, in turn, makes the timing technology critical in aerospace and defense applications where extreme conditions are the norm.
The two new precision timing oscillators aim to address this by delivering high performance in extreme conditions in aerospace-defense applications such as positioning, navigation and timing (PNT), tactical communications, network synchronization, and surveillance. These ruggedized devices from SiTime are unveiled as Endura ultra-stable Super-TCXO and Endura low-jitter differential oscillator.
Fari Assaderaghi, executive VP of technology and engineering at SiTime, claims that these precision timing solutions will deliver much better accuracy, stability, and environmental resilience. “It’ll save engineers valuable development time that would have otherwise been spent on troubleshooting.”
