For Immediate Release
Monday, May 8th, 2006
Sunnyvale, CA - SiTime, a privately held Silicon Valley startup bringing the first MEMS based all silicon timing
solutions to market, and Ecliptek Corporation, a leader in the frequency control market, have signed
a strategic partnership agreement allowing Ecliptek to develop products based on SiTime's MEMS First™
Kurt Petersen, CEO of SiTime Corporation said "We are thrilled to work with Ecliptek, one of the
largest industry suppliers of frequency control products. This partnership combines SiTime's revolutionary
MEMS First™ technology with Ecliptek's recognized leadership in customer service, support, and knowledge of
the market, which are three crucial ingredients for success."
Ecliptek is currently taking sample requests for their first generation product, the EMO™ family, and
will be shipping mass production in the fall of 2006. Information on EMO™ products can be found on
the company's web site at www.ecliptek.com.
"We are very excited to enter this partnership", said Cary Rosen, President and CEO of Ecliptek Corporation.
"SiTime's technology coupled with Ecliptek's experience in the frequency control market will make for an
effective business relationship. We are looking forward to taking a collaborative approach to developing
current and future generations of products using MEMS First™ technology".
SiTime Corporation develops MEMS Silicon resonators and related products. The MEMS First™ and
EpiSeal™ process licensed from Robert Bosch GmbH has removed the technical barriers preventing
wide acceptance of this quartz replacement technology. The key benefits of the technology are still
to be fully realized in future value added components. These benefits include MEMS+CMOS integration,
multiple resonators per die, and system benefits derived from a captive time source. SiTime's primary
investors are Greylock and NEA venture capital firms as well as Robert Bosch GmbH.
