I was not previously aware of the thermal sensitivty of quartz  - if the new MEMS technology can address this issue, I'm sure it will benefit many applications.

MEMS Oscillators Everywhere
sundarpv   2/10/2014 6:38:53 PM

MEMS oscillators are not just beneficial for their availability and short lead times but also for their quality, reliability, size, isolation from shock and vibration, lack of activity dips and much more.  At SiTime (, we have shipped more than 200 million units over the last 7 years and continue to grow at a rapid pace serving customers in all markets worldwide.  Once the customers use the MEMS oscillators in one sockets, they have always come back for more.
