MEMS oscillators are now replacing legacy quartz crystal oscillators. They provide higher performance, new features, improved reliability, shorter lead times, and reduced cost. We will present the highest performance MEMS oscillator to date, discussing the construction and performance. This paper will review the market segmentation and commercial impact of the technology and discuss the future direction of the industry.
