MMD Adds Low-Cost Line (MOFL) of OCXOs at TCXO Prices; Units Available in 14-Pin DIP or Surface-Mount Configurations
RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif., June 28, 2006 - MMD Components (Monitor & Quartztek), a producer of frequency control devices, has introduced the MOFL series, a line of low-cost oven-controlled crystal oscillators (OCXOs) featuring an AT cut crystal design that allows customers to enjoy the benefits of OCXO performance for the price of a TCXO (temperature-compensated crystal oscillator).
Ideal for a wide variety of instrumentation and industrial applications, MMD's new OCXOs boast stabilities of ±0.1 ppm over an operating temperature range of -20ºC to +70ºC and are evacuated for ultimate frequency stability over the entire operating range. Units are offered in an industry-standard 14-pin DIP (dual inline package) configuration or in a gull-wing surface-mount version.
The OCXOs provide fast warm-up and low power usage, with typical current consumption of 200mA during start-up and under 75mA in steady-state operation @ 25C for a 12Vdc unit. Customers can also specify operating voltages of 3.3V and 5V as well as frequency ranges from 1 MHz to 100 MHz.
Availability for the MOFL series OCXOs is stock to 6 weeks for units with standard frequencies, 12 weeks for custom frequencies. Prices start as low as $55 each for units with frequencies under 40MHz and in quantities of 100. More information can be obtained from MMD Components (Monitor & Quartztek), 30400 Esperanza, Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., 92688; telephone 949-709-5075 or, toll free, 877-663-2667; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org; or on the Web at www.mmdcomp.com.
