App note: Driving multiple loads with 32 kHz Nano-Power MEMS oscillators

Accomodating multiple loads from a single oscillator output discussed in this app note from SiTime. Link here (PDF)

Optimizing board space and managing power consumption of wearable devices is critical in sustaining competitiveness within this fast growing consumer segment. With less power consumed, battery life is extended or provides the option to reduce the battery size. MEMSbased reference clocks offer an alternate to traditional quartz crystal timekeeping components, with advantages including a significant footprint reduction, improved accuracy, and lower system power. In addition, the capability to drive multiple loads with one ultra-small, nano-power oscillator is one way in which MEMS are supporting these improvements.
