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.
