Epson Electronics America recently started volume production of a new programmable crystal oscillator in its popular SG-8003 series. The SG-8003CG is housed in a tiny package that measures 2.5x2.0x0.8mm. With a footprint and cubic size that are approximately 38 per cent and 58 per cent smaller than those of the company's comparable SG-8003CE programmable oscillator, the new device aims to significantly reduce electronic equipment size. It can also be driven at supply voltages ranging from 1.8 V to 3.3 V.

"By allowing customers to immediately prepare crystal oscillators that produce the required frequency, the new writer helps significantly shorten product development and evaluation times," said Masayuki Kitamura, chief operating officer of Epson's Microdevices Operations Division.

Epson has also announced its new programming tool called the SG-Writer II. With Windows 7 support, the tool can be used to program clock oscillators in the SG-8000 series. Customers can easily program oscillators by selecting the desired frequency, output conditions, and drive voltage in a program and then saving that data in memory (PROM).
