New Compact 1 V Oscillators from Fox Electronics Provide Exceptionally Low Current Consumption across Full Frequency Range

Fort Myers, Fla. March 2, 2009 - Fox Electronics, a leading global supplier of frequency control solutions, has expanded its line of small form factor, low voltage oscillators with the 1-volt F200 Series in a 2.5 mm x 2.0 mm package and a standby function that reduces the oscillator's current consumption to five micro amps for more efficient power usage.

The F200's extremely low current draw of 2.5 mA across the 1.8 MHz to 32 MHz frequency range and 3.5 mA from 32.1 MHz to 50.0 MHz makes the new oscillator series ideal for a wide range of environments with minimal air circulation, such as compact consumer electronics and weather-proof enclosures.

The new oscillators are also ideal for numerous portable and battery powered devices. These include satellite and terrestrial radio; WiMax, 802.11 and Bluetooth wireless; wired and optical networks for voice, data and Internet as well as for automotive and test equipment; remote sensing equipment; and GPS.

Stabilities of the F200 range from ±20 ppm to ±100 ppm across an operating temperature range of -10°C to +70°C (+14°F to +158°F), with ±25 ppm through ±100 ppm stabilities available across an extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C (-40°F to +185°F).

Pricing for an F200 series HCMOS Oscillator Model F205-25 (1 V, 25 MHz, ±50 ppm, 2.5 mm x2.0 mm) starts at $1.59 per piece in quantities of 10,000 on a standard tape and reel assembly. Delivery is eight weeks ARO.
