Bliley Technologies Introduces AT (Cut-to-Style) Crystals with Customizable Frequencies for High Reliability Designs Subject to Extreme Shock and Vibration

Bliley's latest market introduction for aerospace, defense and industrial electronic applications is an AT cut crystal series allowing design engineers to specify custom frequencies (to six decimal places) for maximized frequency pull range. Well suited for VCXO or TCXO crystal oscillator and crystal filter designs, Bliley's AT cut-to-style crystals are designed specifically for extreme environmental conditions with an available frequency range between 1.0 MHz and 150 MHz.

ERIE, Pa. - Bliley Technologies, Inc., a worldwide leader in crystal controlled frequency generation solutions, has introduced a configurable, AT cut-to-package-style series of crystals for high reliability performance in shock- and vibration-laden environments. Design engineers will realize the following benefits for electronic circuit design applications in the defense, aerospace and industrial manufacturing sectors:

o Custom specification of frequencies to six decimal places

o Four-point mount for ruggedized designs

o Low g-sensitivity (<1.5 x 10-9)

o +/- 15 ppm available over temperature

o High temperature reflow capable

o Suitability for virtually any VCXO, TCXO or standard oscillator design

o RoHS compliant when specified.

"Design flexibility and customization are central to our latest product introduction for high reliability applications," said Dennis Barrick, Bliley's Global Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. "Bliley remains one of the very few companies offering customizable frequency, AT cut crystals, which provide electronic engineers with more design solutions."
