Shock-Resistant Oscillator performs in high-temperatures.

Press Release Summary:

Supplied in TO-39 package, SQXO-2ATHG can withstand shock levels up to 8,000 g for 0.5 msec, ½ sine, for use in such applications as underground boring tools, down hole instrumentation, and avionics. Frequencies are available from 32.768 kHz to 50 MHz, and products can be specified to operate from 3.3 or 5 V supply. Providing CMOS output and start up time of under 5 msec, fully RoHS-compliant oscillators consume as little as 3.0 mA and come in variants available for operation up to 200°C.

IQD's New Specialist High Shock Oscillator Also Delivers High Temperature Performance

The new SQXO-2ATHG range of very high shock survivability oscillators launched by IQD are housed in a TO-39 package and can withstand shock levels of up to 8,000g for 0.5ms, ½ sine. They are designed primarily for applications such as underground boring tools, down hole instrumentation and avionics applications including flight recorder equipment and on board computers.

Frequencies are available from 32.768kHz up to 50MHz and can be specified to operate from either a 3.3V or 5V supply providing an CMOS output and a start up time of under 5ms. High temperature is catered for with variants being available which operate up to 200 degrees C.

Current consumption is down to 3.0mA which again lends itself to applications in remote locations where easy access is not always possible. Standard packaging is in a tray and the devices are fully RoHS compliant.

Further information is available from all IQD's worldwide sales offices with full applications support.
