High Accuracy Oscillator Technology
SemiBlocks is developing a high accuracy oscillators technology. This all CMOS solution is eliminating the effects of hysteresis and allows self-sensing to compensate for frequency errors due to temperature variations.
The SemiBlocks solution works with a low-cost crystal. No further external components are required enabling integration in other functions. It is a technology breakthrough in the field of timing reference technology (like TCXOs and OCXOs).
Highest performance solution in terms of accuracy & stability with integration possibilities.
– Better price performance
– Lower power consumption
– Shock robustness
– Larger temperature range
TCXO replacement, improve current TCXOs that
are used in smartphones
OCXO replacement, improve current OCXOs that
are used in communication infrastructure
VCXO & TCXO replacement, improve current VCXOs
and TCXOs that are used for linecards
SemiBlocks, the Eindhoven-based fabless semiconductor company, has received a € 1.7 million innovation credit from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland or RVO.nl). This will help the company to turn its breakthrough crystal oscillator technology solution from a working proof-of-concept prototype into first silicon. Along with the € 3 million raised last summer […]
SemiBlocks, a Dutch semiconductor company, has raised €3m from BOM Brabant Ventures and a major strategic partner in the United States. The funds will be used to develop a new type of compensation for temperature variations, significantly improving the quality of communication technologies. Communication technologies are influenced by temperature variations. Without the required compensation, communication […]
In June 2017, SemiBlocks B.V. was founded as a joint venture between AnharmonIC B.V. and Semiconductor Ideas to the Market (ItoM) B.V. This followed 4 years of background technology development in a breakthrough crystal oscillator technology platform.

Rob van der Valk
Active since 1985, Rob van der Valk is one of the most prominent architects of timing chips. In 1992, he started working on infrastructure PLLs and delivered a very successful synchronization (timing) chip for Mitel Semiconductor (later Zarlink). This IC is still sold today by Microsemi. He holds over 20 patents, mainly on timing devices.
