@simon7382, Although what you are saying is correct but, look at it in different angle. As the article says this is $4 billion industry and this is huge. And if we can replace quartz crystal with silicon chip that would reduce the circuit area because you can embed the clock internally.

At least two Silicon Valley start-up companies trying to do essentially the same thing have failed financially in recent years. Why would any informed investor fund a start-up trying to try this yet it again is difficult to understand.

Using CMOS to build clock is not a new technology. However, the advantage of this new technology developed by ECOSEMI is claimed to be the high accuracy (which is the main drawback of using silicon oscillator). How accurate this new stuff can be? Hope to see more news in this area as there is a real need to replace crystal.
