Vectron & Discera Drive New Era Of MEMS Timing Devices

Discera, Inc., and Vectron International announced at Electronica that they will work together to make MEMS oscillators a reality for electronics manufacturers.
CMOS MEMS-based resonators are a truly disruptive technology that enables electronics companies to remove scalability and cost obstacles that face customers today. MEMS technology overcomes some of today's existing challenges while opening the door way to tomorrow's previously impossible applications through microfabrication technology. MEMS promises to revolutionize nearly every product category by bringing together silicon-based microelectronics with micromachining technology. By using CMOS MEMS oscillators, manufacturers of consumer electronics, hard disc drives and other devices will realize a number of benefits including reduced footprint requirements, shorter lead times, robust construction and lower power. Additionally, the technology can be advanced to support high-precision applications.

“We believe MEMS oscillators are an important part of the future of the frequency control market,” said Ed Grant, vice president North America products and operations, Vectron. “While the promise of MEMS oscillators has been around a long time, no vendor has been able to prove their reliability and manufacturability. We believe Discera is well positioned to deliver on this promise. We look forward to working together with Discera, utilizing our complementary skills to create industry-defining products.”

“We are very excited about working with Vectron,” said Venkat Bahl, vice president of marketing, Discera, Inc. “Working with Vectron lends tremendous momentum to the MEMS oscillator world and Discera in particular. The two companies are ideally positioned in the market to leverage each others strengths towards creating and strengthening market position.”
