Avnet adds ECS Inc. International to linecard


Global technology distributor Avnet Inc. has reached a distribution agreement with ECS Inc. International, a global manufacturer of silicon-based timing devices and frequency control products. Avnet will now offer the complete ECS line to customers within North America.

The Olathe, Kansas-based ECS provides a broad range of products ranging from crystal and high-stability, oven-controlled oscillators to surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters, suited for handheld and wireless applications. ECS recently launched the ECSpressCON quick-turn oscillator that delivers increased functionality, miniaturization and low power consumption at low cost, and allows customers to customize frequencies of four industry-standard packages.

“The demand for precision timing products is increasing in industries such as medical, industrial and automotive. More broadly, applications for precision timing in the IoT and wireless spaces are growing dramatically,” says Eric Slatten, vice-president of global sales, ECS Inc. International. “Design engineers will benefit from the combination of ECS Inc. International’s broad product portfolio of leading technology products and Avnet’s design and supply chain expertise.”
