Ecliptek Press Release
Ecliptek Offers Industry's Smallest MEMS Spread Spectrum
Oscillators (2.0mm x 2.5mm) Combined With Exceptional Savings
Ecliptek Corporation, a leading supplier of frequency control products for over 20 years, introduces
its new EMS4 series of MEMS based spread spectrum programmable clock oscillators. These silicon resonator based
oscillator devices greatly reduce cost and lead time as compared to similar quartz based oscillator products.
December 3, 2008
Costa Mesa, CA - Ecliptek Corporation announces the expansion of their EMS MEMS spread spectrum low EMI output
surface mount oscillator, the EMS4 series.
The EMS4, in a miniature 2.0mm x 2.5mm package, reduces EMI at the clock source instead of locations later down the
clock stream, potentially eliminating the use of supplemental shielding enclosures and/or filtering components.
This greatly reduces system costs and improves overall EMI performance. Applications for the EMS series include
set-top boxes, medical equipment, scanners, printers, LCD displays, and communications equipment.
Standard specifications for the EMS4 series include a frequency range of 1MHz to 175MHz; 1.8V, 2.5V or 3.3V supply
voltage; ±50ppm or ±100ppm frequency stability; LVCMOS single ended output; programmable spread percentages
of ±0.25%, ±0.50% and ±1.00% center spread and -0.5%, -1.0%, -2.0% down spread; spread spectrum enable/disable
function; and tri-state or power down options for a high impedance output.
Using a proprietary ASIC and state-of-the-art programming techniques, Ecliptek is able to program and deliver EMS4
series products in as little as 7 days ARO. Prices start at $ 2.71 EA in 1000 piece quantities on tape and reel.
