History of Coverage

History of Coverage

Dedalus Consulting has prepared reports on the frequency control and timing industry since 1994 starting with an in-depth analysis of the global shifts in production and consumption in the quartz crystal and oscillators industry. Over the next next several years into the early 2000's, reporting expanded to include other types of frequency control devices such as atomic frequency standards, RBXO's, and ceramic resonators. Finally in 2004, we added silicon timing and MEMS oscillators to our coverage as that market started developing.

In 2017, we expanded our product and services offerings to include not only printed and digital reports, but also a searchable database of our complete knowledgebase in the frequency control & timing space.

This report is part of the 9th edition of our complete frequency control and timing coverage. Our extensive database covering historical and forecast data from 1994 through 2023, as well as our industry knowledge, experience, and reliability make us a trusted source for market and competitive intelligence.
