FORT MYERS, USA: Fox Electronics, a leading global supplier of frequency control solutions, now offers a new series of small footprint, low current consumption oscillators for small and portable devices.
The F100 HCMOS oscillator family is available in 1.8V (F110 series), 2.5V (F140 series) and 3.3V (F130 series) options and a frequency range of 1.0 MHz to 80.0 MHz, all in a compact 2.0 mm x 1.6 mm footprint with a low 0.8 mm profile.
The compact size of the new F100 oscillators makes them ideal for use in portable and space-constrained devices, including laptop computers, PDAs, cell phones, DVD players, MP3 players, video and digital cameras, as well as MCMCIA cards, Bluetooth, and small rack-mount and portable test equipment.
Featuring a standby function that reduces current consumption to 10 micro amps, the new Fox oscillators utilize power more efficiently. The F100 oscillators offer stabilities from +/-50 ppm and +/-100 ppm across an operating temperature range of -20 degrees C to +70 degrees C and an extended range of -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C. Stability of +/-25 ppm is available over an operating temperature range of -10 degrees C to +60 degrees C.
Pricing for an F130 series HCMOS oscillator (25 MHz, +/-50 ppm F135 model) starts at $0.99 in quantities of 10,000 on a standard tape and reel assembly. Delivery is eight weeks ARO.
