  • 1. Discera Product Overview Discera Confidential 1
  • 2. Discera OverviewDiscera builds MEMS-based timing solutions that directly replace older quartz timing technology with more manufacturable and reliable semiconductor-based products– Founded in 2001. Headquarters (San Jose, USA) with R&D Center (Ann Arbor, USA) and Customer Applications Center (Shenzhen, China)– Sales and Support Offices in China, Germany, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, UK Supporting the evolution from mechanically …to consistent and reliable ground and polished crystals… semiconductor technology Discera Confidential 2
  • 3. What is MEMS?MEMS stands for Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems– MEMS technology is proven, the first devices were produced in 1967– It is widely used today to replace expensive, legacy technologies with higher performing, more capable semiconductor-based equivalentsMEMS Accelerometer MEMS DLP Projectors MEMS Timing MEMS Microphone MEMS Printer Heads Discera Confidential 3
  • 4. Using Oscillators Instead of Plain CrystalOscillators used in computing, networking, video and other applications where performance, reliability, size, and development time are important to deliver Higher and more stable performance Higher reliability • Consistent timing independent of layout • Minimal effect from board aging • Self contained device matches resonator • Single component replaces crystal and load and drive circuitry capacitor • Less coupling of noise into circuitry • Insensitive to EMI, vibration and humidity Better size and flexibility Faster time to market • Smaller overall board space consumed by • Tolerant of layout and PCB changes timing function • Guaranteed timing accuracy • Flexible PCB sourcing since PCB parasitics do not affect frequency control Discera Confidential 4
  • 5. Using MEMS Instead of Crystal Oscillators Crystal MEMS MEMS oscillators drop into standard oscillator footprints and offer advantages in performance, reliability, pricing, and time-to-marketBetter performance stability Higher reliability• Up to 10ppm stability across • Full JEDEC, MIL-STD qualification full temperature range • 1.5 FIT reliability rates vs. 20 FIT for crystal• Temperature grades up to 125C (vs 85C) • 50 000 G shock and 50 G vibration tolerance• Less than 0.5 ps phase noise jitter (vs 200 G shock, 10 G vibration)Better pricing Faster time to market• Semiconductor supply chain, without • 2 weeks production lead time vs. mechanical handling steps of crystal 8-16 weeks for crystal• On CMOS pricing trend, scaling with chip • Engineering prototypes programmable in geometry in Global, TSMC processes 1 sec with full production performance Discera Confidential 5
  • 6. Performance AdvantageFor a top networking manufacturer, performance was the reason tochoose Discera. Discera ships the world’s highest performance MEMS oscillators, delivering system-level performance that beats the 10 Gigabit Ethernet and 6G SAS specifications by 45-60% Integrated Phase Noise 200KHz-20 MHz 0.3 ps Discera Confidential 6
  • 7. Reliability Advantage For one of the world’s largest printer manufacturers, reliability was the reason to choose Discera. Discera MEMS offers 20x the MTBF of crystal oscillators because they use semiconductor technology instead of fragile and contaminant-prone quartz crystal MTBFDiscera MEMS 1822 Crystal OSC 90 0 500 1000 1500 2000 Hours (x 106) Discera Confidential 7
  • 8. Operating Advantage For a major ODM, operating stability was the reason to choose Discera. Demand for smaller, fanless products resulted in system failures when their internal temperature exceeded crystal oscillator design limits of 85C, while Discera MEMS is available in 105C and 125C grades with shock resistance of up to 50 000G Temperature StabilityDiscera MEMS Crystal OSC -60 -40 -20 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 Temperature (C) Discera Confidential 8
