Ecliptek MEMS Spread Spectrum Oscillators Provide Significant Cost Savings, Reduced EMI

Ecliptek Corporation, a leading supplier of frequency control products for over 20 years, introduces its new EMS 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.
October 1st, 2008
Costa Mesa, CA - Ecliptek Corporation announces the expansion of their EMO™ family of MEMS oscillator products to include a new MEMS spread spectrum low EMI output surface mount oscillator, the EMS series
The EMS series oscillators reduce EMI at the clock source, potentially eliminating the use of supplemental shielding enclosures and/or filtering components later down the clock stream. 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 EMS series include a frequency range of 1MHz to 200MHz; 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 EMS products in as little as 7 days ARO. Prices start at $1.56 in 1000 piece quantities on tape and reel.
