App note: Best design and layout practices for SiTime oscillators


SiTime’s app note about how to properly route an oscillator’s PCB traces. Link here

Proper decoupling, bypassing, and power supply noise reduction is important in many applications to ensure optimal performance for oscillators. A common strategy is to place capacitors near high speed devices on a printed circuit board (PCB). These capacitors serve important functions:
– Provide instantaneous current to the component
– Reduce noise propagation through the system
– Shunt the power supply noise to GND
The following sections describe decoupling, bypassing, noise rejection, and power supply condition recommendations for SiTime’s single-ended and differential timing devices.
