Ecliptek Corporation, a supplier of frequency control products to the electronics industry, has released its SmartSearch web app.
The new SmartSearch makes it easier to find crystals and oscillators based on a wide range of parametric attributes.
Thanks to SmartSearch, Ecliptek's customers now have a simple process to select and prioritize parametric values, narrowing their search to the best part for their application in under 60 seconds.
"Each frequency control application has its own set of criteria. An extreme operating temperature range of -55°C to +125°C might be most critical to one customer, while another customer might need an input current of 2mA maximum," said Robert Zarrow, vice president of global customer support at Ecliptek, in a statement.
Zarrow said that SmartSearch gives each customer the ability to find a part number solution based solely on how they define their individual priorities.
Company officials said that SmartSearch results link to a part number detail page for each part number that meets the customer's criteria. This gives the customer access to available inventory, how to buy and quick quote links, part number specific data sheets, as well as REACH, RoHS, product life cycle and IPC (News - Alert) 1752 material declaration information.
Zarrow said that Ecliptek currently offers over two million part numbers, which will grow to over 4 million by 2015.
“Our Information Technology team has given the ability to find a part number within 60 seconds to engineers and buyers who have previously found it difficult to quickly locate the frequency control solution they need,” he said.
Back in February, Ecliptek announced that it and Arrow Electronics (News - Alert), Inc. have joined forces to streamline the customer experience in quickly locating and purchasing frequency control products by implementing Ecliptek’s Data Download on Arrow’s product lifecycle platform available via arrow.com.
Arrow’s customers will have immediate access to hundreds of thousands of frequency control products in available inventory. The system provides fast, accurate results based on either a part number or parametric search via arrow.com.
