Ecliptek's New Crystal and Oscillator Cross Reference Identifies Part Number to Part Number Options With Inventory

Over 1,000,000 Competitor Part Numbers Indexed With Available Stock for Immediate Shipment From Ecliptek

COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwire - August 12, 2009) - Ecliptek Corporation has introduced its latest web based tool, a searchable index that maps specific part numbers from many other frequency control suppliers to recommended Ecliptek alternative items. This comprehensive Crystal and Oscillator Cross Reference by Supplier addresses an overwhelming need identified by engineering and purchasing customers for specific part number crosses as opposed to the cumbersome series level references commonly seen elsewhere today.

"For years now, customer feedback repeatedly confirmed that series to series cross references are laborious, too generic and essentially useless," declared Robert Zarrow, Vice President of Sales at Ecliptek. "Our customers, with resources already stretched thin in today's economy, no longer need to waste a lot of time and effort struggling to successfully cross products based on limited series specifications."

Ecliptek has already added over a million competitor part numbers into the system, paired with their suggested Ecliptek alternatives. The database also displays available inventory, links to configuration specific Ecliptek data sheets, RoHS status, and a brief product description. Customers can click on the referenced Ecliptek part number to access the automated Quick Quote or Sample Request tools.

In addition to the extensive cross reference database, Ecliptek has provided a streamlined means for customers to request competitor part numbers that are not already listed. With a single click, Ecliptek will process the request within one business day, as well as update the new recommended crosses to the existing index. While Ecliptek will continue to promptly respond to phone-in and e-mail requests to cross parts, customers are strongly encouraged to utilize this new online feature that is available around the clock.

"Ecliptek developed this tool to provide immediate solutions for shortages," stated Zarrow. "We have coupled this extensive cross reference with the world's largest crystal and oscillator inventory so that customers can find the products they need right now to get their production back up and running again!"
