SiTime Delivers Precision Timing Solution for Low Power FPGAs

Precision Timing Solution Supports Secure IEEE 1588 Synchronization and Helps Accelerate 5G Fronthaul Deployment

 SiTime Corporation will provide its Precision Timing Solutions to Lattice Semiconductor, the low power programmable leader. The SiTime devices, a Cascade MEMS-based Clock-System-on-a-Chip (ClkSoC) and an Emerald OCXO or Elite X Super-TCXO, are incorporated into Lattice’s new synchronization hardware development platform.

“At Lattice, delivering customer-centric, power-efficient FPGA innovation with flexibility, scalability, and security is a top priority,” said Matt Dobrodziej, Vice President of Segment Marketing and Business Development, Lattice Semiconductor. “We are excited to further strengthen our partner ecosystem with this collaboration with SiTime to demonstrate the precision timing capabilities of the Lattice FPGA solutions. This innovation will enable our customers with more ways to develop and deploy low latency, secure, and synchronized solutions powered by our industry-leading FPGA technology.”

Lattice and SiTime share a common objective – using the power of programmability to solve customer problems and accelerate network deployment, said Lionel Bonnot, EVP Worldwide Sales and Business Development at SiTime. “Higher speeds, lower latency and distributed computing are driving new deployment architectures where equipment is subjected to environmental stressors such as shock, vibration, and temperature changes. These deployments require a new timing technology paradigm, and SiTime delivers.”
