Fox Electronics has released a 1.8V HCMOS oscillator that combines small footprint with low heat generation and current consumption. The RoHS-compliant F210 series is only 2.5mm x 2mm with an input current of only 2.5mA to 5mA across the entire 0.75MHz to 50MHz frequency range.

The new F210 oscillator series is suitable for environments with minimal air circulation, such as compact consumer electronics and weather-proof enclosures. They are also used in a wide range of other portable and battery powered devices including 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.

The oscillators feature a standby function that reduces current consumption to 10?A for more efficient power usage and offer stabilities from 25ppm to 100ppm across an operating temperature range of -10C to +70C, with 50ppm and 100ppm stabilities available across an extended range of -40C to +85C.

Pricing for an F210 series HCMOS oscillator (25MHz, 50ppm F215 model) starts at 99 cents per piece in quantities of 10,000, on a standard tape and reel assembly. Delivery is eight weeks ARO.
