Ceramic Crystals Withstand High Shock And Vibration Levels

Two series of ceramic surface-mount automotive-grade crystals are built to operate at extended temperature ranges and engineered to withstand high levels of shock and vibration. The FXA5032B and FXA7050B crystals are used in a variety of automotive timing applications, including GPS navigation, high-end audio and video systems, wireless phones, collision warning systems, antilock brake system controller, radar, and onboard computer systems. The FXA5032B series features a 5-mm x 3-mm package with a frequency range of 8 MHz to 150 MHz, while the larger 7-mm x 5-mm FXA7050B series offers a 6-MHz to 133-MHz frequency range. Standard frequency stabilities for both series are ±50 ppm to ±100 ppm, with operating temperatures ranging from ?40°C to +85°C and ?40°C to +125°C, respectively. Both products meet AEC-Q200 and feature a load capacitance of 10 pF, a drive level of 100 µW, and a maximum soldering temperature of 260°C per 10 seconds. These RoHS-compliant crystals have a gold termination finish and are seam sealed. The hermetically sealed lid helps keep foreign matter and moisture from getting inside the package. Pricing for a FXA5032B with an operating temperature range of ?40°C to +125°C is $0.39 each in quantities of 10,000. Delivery is 6-8 weeks ARO. FOX ELECTRONICS, Fort Myers, FL. (888) 438-2369.
