SiTime MEMS Oscillators Support Square Point-of-Sale Products

News

SiTime has announced that Square, the software, payments, and hardware solution for businesses of all sizes, is using the SiTime SiT8008 low-power, programmable MEMS oscillator for its Square Terminal and Square Register point-of-sale (POS) products. The SiT8008 is one of SiTime's most popular devices and is used in over 50 applications across the enterprise, industrial, mobile, and consumer markets.

The stability of the timing subsystem plays a critical role in ensuring the accuracy of POS products. System vendors do have a choice for timing. They can use a SiTime oscillator, which is an external, standalone timing device, or they can use an on-chip oscillator on their microprocessor/SoC. An external oscillator like the SiT8008 will consistently deliver 10-100 times better clock stability because of superior MEMS and analog technology and SiTime's systems expertise. Additionally, the programmable architecture of the SiT8008 provides excellent configurability to the user and ensures fast delivery.

“Our goal is to provide sellers with POS solutions that operate with exceptional reliability and accuracy at all times,” said Thomas Templeton, General Manager for Hardware at Square. “SiTime's timing solutions are a good match for our Square Terminal and Register products because they help us to deliver an accurate, reliable product to our customers.”

“Square's POS products are renowned for their high quality, ease of use, innovative design, and reliability,” said Piyush Sevalia, executive vice president of marketing at SiTime. “SiTime's MEMS timing solutions are a good fit for Square's products as they deliver innovation, flexibility, high quality, and reliability in a small form factor. We look forward to continuing to work closely with Square.”

The SiTime SiT8008 programmable oscillator features a wide frequency range, low power consumption, small size, and excellent temperature stability over a wide temperature range. The SiT8008 family is programmable, enabling quicker sampling and shorter overall lead times. Continuous 1.8 V to 3.3 V supply voltage enables inventory consolidation and minimizes qualification time. The oscillators support any frequency between 1 and 110 MHz while providing stability from ±20 ppm to ±50 ppm. SiT8008 oscillators are available in small packages for all frequencies, voltages, and stabilities, enabling board space savings for space-constrained designs without compromising performance and availability.



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
