Can anyone throw some light on how MEMS oscillators are used in rear-view cameras ?

timing control I would guess.

This is just starting. Wait for India and China to toughen their car safety rules, the world will witness a massive jump in this business.

by any standard 34% growth is phenomenal. And i agree with goafrit that the good days are still ahead for MEMS.

I can not imagine what the automotive MEMs market would be like if / when the world economy picks up! While I would not want to spend big bucks on what I feel are frills (tire pressure monitoring for one) having them at low cost is "nice". I expect that overall the MEMs market will continue to grow as more devices rely on them and consumers value the added functionality.

The main advantage of MEMs oscillators for rear-view camera is their robustness, especially with vibration, according to iSuppli.
