MEMS oscillator, also known as microelectromechanical (MEMS) system, is employed as a timing device to generate highly stable frequencies to measure elapsed time. These frequencies are used to manage data transfer, sequence electronic systems, define various radio frequencies, and measure elapsed time. These are MEMS timing devices with multiple outputs for systems that require more than one reference frequency. MEMS oscillators are very good and efficient substitutes for quartz crystal oscillators that provide better resilience for vibration, mechanical shock, and are more reliable in terms of temperature variation. MEMS oscillators are lightweight, have long battery backup, and are user-friendly.
In terms of construction, the MEMS oscillators market is segmented into surface mount and chip scale. In terms of frequency range, the market can be segmented into mega Hertz (MHz) and kilo Hertz (kHz). Moreover, in terms of control circuit, the market can be segmented into temperature-compensated (TCMO) MEMS oscillator, voltage-controlled (VCMO) MEMS oscillator, digital-controlled (DCMO) MEMS oscillator, spread-spectrum (SSMO) MEMS oscillator, and frequency select (FSMO) MEMS oscillator. Furthermore, in terms of end-user industry, the market can be segmented into consumer electronics, industrial, aerospace, defense and military, telecommunications, and IT hardware networking. In terms of geography, the market is segmented into Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe, North America, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa (MEA).
