Time Flash Programmer

Microchip offers the time flash programmer for PureSilcon™ MEMS oscillators

Image of Micrel Time Flash ProgrammerMicrochip's time flash programmer allows users to rapidly program, through a Microsoft Windows GUI program on a PC, any DSC8XXX Programmable MEMS oscillator to a custom frequency in seconds. Time flash supports the field programmable versions of the DSC10XX standard CMOS, and the DSC11XX performance oscillators. The oscillators can be programmed over their respective frequency range in increments of 100 Hz. The time flash programming kit includes a programming dongle, USB cable, antistatic tweezers, and USB flash drive with a Windows based PC installation program. The time flash is used with device dependent socket adapter cards and the appropriate DSC8XXX devices. Available in industry standard packages, the DSC8XXX can be “dropped-in” to the same PCB footprint as standard crystal oscillators.
