Crystal Oscillator IC’s
Main clock modules of digital cellular and digital cordless phones conventionally require several discrete parts, including
a thermistor as a temperature sensor, and a variable diode as an oscillator. Analog Temperature Compensated Crystal
Oscillator (TCXO) ICs from AKM provide a compact, 1-chip solution that meets the need for clock modules, as portable
handsets become progressively smaller.
Touchscreen Controllers
AKM offers a complete family of touchscreen controllers, including devices with integrated audio converters. Flexible
control interfaces include both SPI format and I
C format. Designed for portable products, AKM touchscreen controllers
offer very low power consumption in small packages, ranging down to 3mm X 4mm. Some products feature industry
standard pinouts and specifications for fast time-to-market.
