Time and Tide Wait for None: Technology Proves That

Posted On: 2017-06-09

The report study, titled “Timing device market”– Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast 2017 – 2025” projects light on the major compounds, restraints, progress opportunities, and trends prevailing in the market. The key players in the Timing Device Market have been considered in detail, alongside Porter’s Five Force Analysis to determine the nature of competition among them.

They say, “Time and Tide Wait for None,” it is because we humans have limited amount of time to prove our potential/worth to the world or to ourselves.  With time you can grow and sometimes fall. Evolving as a person with time is important, but some focus on monitory success. Well, in this blog we are here to talk about the time device market’s rise and its technological advancement.

We all know that time is a critical feature of digital systems, ensuring that the data smoothly progresses through processor pipelines and interconnected systems that connect to each other.  However, many simple, or low-speed applications simply rely on a microcontroller’s internal RC oscillator to provide the necessary clock signal. Whereas, internal oscillators may be too slow and noisy for some designs.

Did you know? In the space, it takes us to blink an eye (300 to 400 milliseconds is the average) a modern entrenched core can perform millions of operations. It’s almost immeasurable for us to distinguish such tiny fractions of time, especially since the evolution of timekeeping began with sundials and water clocks, with the first accurate clock which was discovered in 1656. As technology has developed, the modern digital technology operates quite comfortably at prompt speed because of decades of advancements in timing technologies such as the very popular crystal oscillators and clock generators.

A crystal oscillator is the simplest external timing solution to implement. Any timing device is assembled using a common quartz, and piezoelectric material, inserted between two metal plates. The crystal translates the mechanical quality into an electrical signal. An important advantage of crystals is that they have a very large Q-factor, which promotes good frequency stability.  The typical oscillator modes for externally driven microcontrollers include low power/low speed (LP), average speeds (XT), and high speed (HS) operation. Oscillators are used in the various fields such as military/defense, healthcare, consumer electronics, and healthcare. With the increasing adoption rate of the MEMS technology, the market growth for this segment is anticipated to progress at a momentous rate over the forecast period. MEMS technology helps in the miniaturization of devices and energy saving. Stability and accuracy are the utmost advantages of this technology.

A clock generator is a complete solution sometimes called a frequency generator. This integrated circuit offers a lot of functionality available at a moderate cost. Clock generator got some advantages including the ability to generate multiple frequencies that can also be changed dynamically by the Microcontroller using the I2C or SPI serial communication protocols. They offer significant benefits when used to generate multiple frequencies.

 The Global Time Device Market is divided by region which includes North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Due to the increasing focus of the region on the consumer manufacturing, electronics, and automotive sectors the demand for timing devices and other related electronic components are increasing in APAC and hence is expected to propel at the highest rate during the forecast period.<
