Automotive-Grade Ceramic SMD Crystals from Fox Electronics Withstand Higher Levels of Shock and Vibration at Extended Temperature Ranges



Fort Myers, Fla. June 22, 2009 - Fox Electronics, a leading global supplier of frequency control solutions, today announced two new series of ceramic SMD (surface mount device) automotive-grade crystals built to operate at extended temperature ranges and engineered to withstand higher levels of shock and vibration. The new FXA5032B and FXA7050B crystals are used in a variety of automotive timing applications, including GPS navigation, high-end audio and video systems, wireless phones, collision warning systems, Antilock Brake System controller, RADAR and onboard computer systems.

Fox's FXA5032B series features a 5 mm x 3 mm package with a frequency range of 8 MHz to 150 MHz, while the larger 7 mm x 5 mm FXA7050B series offers a 6 MHz to 133 MHz frequency range.

Standard frequency stabilities for both series are ±50 ppm to ±100 ppm, with operating temperatures ranging from -40°C to +85°C and -40°C to +125°C, respectively and a 3 ppm aging per year. Additional tolerances and stabilities are available upon request. In addition, both products meet AEC-Q200, the Automotive Electronics Council Stress Test Qualification for Passive Components, and feature a load capacitance of 10 pF, a drive level of 100 Micro Watts and a maximum soldering temperature of 260°C per 10 seconds.

These RoHS-compliant auto-grade crystals have a gold termination finish and are seam sealed. This hermetically sealed lid helps reduce foreign matter and moisture from inside the package.

Pricing for a FXA5032B with an operating temperature range of -40°C to +125°C is $0.39 each in quantities of 10,000. Delivery is 6-8 weeks ARO.
