Ecliptek Press Release
Ecliptek Begins Sampling MEMS Oscillators
For Immediate Release
Wednesday, November 1st, 2006
Costa Mesa, CA - Ecliptek Corporation announces that it has begun sampling their revolutionary
new EMO™ family of MEMS oscillators.
The EMO™ family is an oscillator
product where the CMOS output frequency is primarily controlled by an internal MEMS
(micro-electro-mechanical system) resonator. Utilizing this proprietary MEMS resonator
design and exclusive programming methods, the EMO™
family oscillators can be shipped to customers in as little as two days for samples and two weeks
for high-volume production orders.
"We're very excited about delivering the EMO™
products to the marketplace" said Cary B. Rosen, President and CEO of Ecliptek Corporation. "We believe
that this technology will help service our customers by providing ultra-fast lead time at competitive prices".
At the heart of EMO™ oscillators
is a vibrating MEMS mechanical resonator 100 times smaller than its consumer grade quartz competitor
which allows ultra-miniature packaging without sacrificing performance. The
EMO™ oscillators use QFN-type plastic
injection molded packaging, resulting in good thermal performance, high reliability, low lead inductance,
and low cost. In comparison, quartz crystal oscillators require more expensive, special purpose ceramic or
metal packages. Available package sizes include 5mm x 7mm, 3.2mm x 5mm, 2.5mm x 3.2mm, and 2.0 x 2.5mm in
supply voltage of 3.3V, 2.5V, or 1.8V.
Samples and quotations for the EMO™ family
can be requested from any of Ecliptek's authorized distributors or on the web at
