Fox Electronics Expands All-Quartz SMD Crystal Series to Include 3.2 mm x 2.5 mm Package Size

Fort Myers, FL, December 2007 - Fox Electronics, America's leading supplier of frequency control products, has expanded its FQ Series of all-quartz crystal packaging technology to include a 3.2 mm x 2.5 mm package size. The FQ 3225B, which features an ultra low profile of 1.0mm, is ideal for a wide range of portable and battery-powered applications including MP3 and CD/ DVD players, cell phones, radios (FM, AM, satellite), set top boxes, modems and routers.

The FQ3225B features enhanced performance with an all-quartz surface mount. In addition, all frequencies for this crystal package are available in fundamental mode, which provides a clean signal for high-end network communications applications.

This crystal series is available in frequencies from 16 MHz to 50 MHz, with a ±50 ppm tolerance of 25°C (77°F). Standard stability is ±50 ppm at temperatures from 10°C to 70°C (50°F to 158°F). The FQ3225B is fully RoHS-compliant and is packaged on a standard tape and reel (1,000 pieces).

Fox's all quartz packaging provides a cost reduction of up to 20% over conventional ceramic packaging and eliminates the recurring problems of ceramic shortages. Compared to ceramic packaging, the FQ series also offers a lighter weight and lower profile.

Large volume pricing for a FQ3225, 25MHz, -10 ~70c, 50/50 is $0.39. Delivery is 8 weeks ARO.
