  • Engineering samples of the SiT58xx Epoch Platform are available now for qualified customers
  • Epoch will expand the company’s communications and enterprise annual Serviceable Available Market (SAM) to $1.3 billion by 2024

SiTime Corporation has unveiled the SiTime Epoch PlatformTM. It is a MEMS-based, oven-controlled oscillator (OCXO) that delivers an ultra-stable clock to data centre and network infrastructure equipment, unlocking a cumulative $2 billion served addressable market (SAM) in the next decade.

Over time, Epoch technology will be extended to other high-growth electronics markets, such as aerospace and defence, industrial controls and more. A synchronised network depends on a number of things to ensure continuous operation. OCXO will “holdover” the network and ensure continued operation when other timing sources are impacted.

With the Epoch Platform, SiTime is breaking through all the limitations of quartz OCXOs. Epoch delivers 2X longer holdover, even under environmental stressors, enabling telecom and cloud service providers to deliver service continuity in real-world conditions.

“The release of the Epoch Platform is a pivotal moment for SiTime and the electronics industry,” said Rajesh Vashist, CEO, and chairman of SiTime. “For many years, customers lived with the shortcomings of existing timing technologies because there were no viable alternatives. They compromised on real-world performance, reliability, and power, to name just a few. SiTime’s Epoch Platform changes the game, delivering higher performance and reliability with lower power that was unavailable until now. These benefits are the result of a half-decade of engineering investment and a systems-based development approach that combines MEMS, analog, packaging, and algorithms. Epoch, along with new products introduced in 2020, with more to come, will expand our communications and enterprise annual SAM to $1.3 billion by 2024. We believe precision timing will be a catalyst for innovation in all electronics and will drive our future success.”

“As the world embraces next-gen technologies, like the explosion of AI, the reinvention of the cloud data center, and high speed 5G/6G cellular networks, advanced circuit and network timing solutions have become critical in ensuring performance, fault tolerance and reliability,” said Dave Altavilla, co-founder, president, and principal analyst at HotTech Vision & Analysis.

Precision timing is critical to network performance and reliability. All nodes in the network must be synchronised in time. For example, all nodes in a 5G network must always be synchronised within hundreds of nanoseconds, which is 10X more stringent than 4G. This level of synchronisation must be maintained despite network outages. By delivering up to 2X better performance, 9X smaller size and 3X lower power in applications such as datacenter switches and routers, 5G base stations and core infrastructure, the Epoch Platform sets a new bar in performance and reliability.

Engineering samples of the SiT58xx Epoch Platform are available now for qualified customers. General samples will be available in October 2023. Volume production is expected in early 2024.

SiTime is the precision timing company. Its programmable solutions offer a rich feature set that enables customers to differentiate their products with higher performance, smaller size, lower power, and better reliability.
