Fort Myers, FL, March 2002 – Fox Electronics announces that it has extended the frequency range and stability options of its popular F4100 Series crystal oscillators to 170 MHz with stabilities as tight as +50 PPM (F4105) for all conditions. The oscillators are ideal for applications that require increased speeds and better noise characteristics, such as Fiber Channel, SONET, ATM, microprocessor and micro-controller. The new oscillators’ extremely low profile makes the series ideal for today’s advanced portable PC and instrumentation designs.

A 3.3 V HCMOS miniature surface mount device (SMD), the F4100 provides increased battery life, reduced heat generation and improved EMI characteristics as well as a standby mode for lower power consumption.

With a standard operating temperature range of -10°C to +70°C (14°F to 158°F), the Series F4100 also has an optional -40°C to +85°C (-40°F to 185°F) range. Output symmetry for the F4100 Series is 40% to 60% at 1.65 V over the frequency range of

50 MHz to 170 MHz; input current is 60 mA maximum.



The Series F4105 is available in bulk quantities or on a 2,000-unit tape and reel for automatic assembly systems.

Pricing for the new F4105 Series crystal oscillator with a stability of +50 PPM and frequency above 125 MHz starts at $ 5.29 per unit in quantities of 2,000. Delivery is 8 to 10 weeks ARO.
