EMI Troubles?

The Solution is Only a Day Away

OK, you just received an e-mailed from your EMI test lab and it’s not very good news. Your board design failed the FCC Compliance test. Meanwhile, pre-production is scheduled for next week and the pressure is on.

Well, you’ve already tried adding ferrite beads and chokes to the circuit board. This was an improvement, but you’re not quite there.

So now you add metal shielding, apply special coating, try some RF gaskets, you even add a power layer & ground plane the circuit, but to no avail.

Think, think, think… what is causing this EMI issue in the first place? The system clocks, such as the frequency timing generator, crystal oscillator, VCO & PLL. But how can you lower the EMI emissions?

All you need to do is remove the existing quartz crystal oscillator and install a drop-in replacement SSXO, an EMI Reduction Clock, also known as a Spread Spectrum Crystal Oscillator.

But there is no time to wait 5 to 6 weeks for a SSXO sample.

The answer is as easy as 1, 2, 3…

  1. Visit www.MercuryUnited.com to generate a Mercury United Part #, include your custom frequency and select your specifications from easy to follow drop-down menus.
  2. Place your order online and specify your preferred ship method.
  3. Your QuikXO Spread Spectrum Crystal Oscillators will ship from Southern California the next working day.
