Silicon Clocks was founded in 2006 to develop high-performance semiconductor timing and sensor designs. The company was acquired by Silicon Labs in 2010.
Silicon Clocks was a fabless semiconductor electronics company developing timing chips for hard disk drives, disk controllers, communications devices, and other consumer electronics. The technology eliminated the need for off-chip quartz crystal resonators, which results in cost reduction and a 10x decrease in power dissipation for the timing component. The company was acquired by Silicon Labs in 2011.
