Dallas Semiconductor has introduced the DS1086L spread-spectrum EconOscillator, which the company claims is the world's smallest low-EMI, 3V, all-silicon clock oscillator. With six user-programmable spread settings from 0 percent to 8 percent, the product offers up to 23dB reduction in radiated emissions (rms voltage) relative to crystal oscillators.

The device can be used as a standalone oscillator to generate clock outputs from 4.9kHz to 66MHz, and has a power-down mode and an output-enable control for power-sensitive applications. The device can simplify or eliminate shielding and filtering while reducing cost and minimizing design time.

The DS1086L operates in the 2.7V to 3.6V range and is available in the tiny 8-pin microSOP. Pricing begins at 90 cents each for 1,000-piece quantities.
