Micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) chipmaker Sand 9 Inc., of Cambridge, Massachusetts, claims to have finally cracked the multibillion unit mobile phone and Internet of Things market with a piezo-electric design that provides the performance lacking in traditional MEMS timing chips. More than five years in the making, Sand 9 has finally announced its first piezo-electric timing chips, for which it already has mobile phone customers lined up.
sell only die in wafer-level chip-scale packages that can be flipped and over-molded into the customer’s package, thus reclaiming the board-space dedicated to multiple bulky quartz crystals today.
