Abstract : The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Dynamics-Enabled Frequency Sources (DEFYS) program is focused on the convergence of nonlinear dynamics and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) to achieve breakthroughs in miniature oscillator performance for Department of Defense (DoD) applications. This project focused on working to demonstrate the advantages of nonlinear dynamics for high-performance oscillators, while confining the activities to a technology platform that has already been commercialized, and which can meet the challenging size and temperature coefficient objectives while maintaining a firm connection to manufacturability.
