Fox Offers 1-volt Oscillators with Low Current Consumption in New Compact Package Size

Fox Electronics, a leading global supplier of frequency control solutions, now offers the F300 series of HCMOS oscillators which feature low voltage and low current consumption. The 1-volt oscillators incorporate a standby function that reduces the oscillator’s current consumption to 5 micro amps for more efficient power usage.

Available in a compact 3.2 mm x 2.5 mm package, the small form factor F300 series includes models with stabilities ranging from ±20 ppm to ±100 ppm. The new oscillators offer an extremely low current draw of 2.5 mA across the 1.8 MHz to 32.0 MHz frequency range and 3.5 mA from 32.1 MHz to 50.0 MHz.


Fox’s new series of RoHS-compliant oscillators are ideal for use in environments with minimal air circulation, such as compact consumer electronics and weather-proof enclosures. 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 automotive and test equipment; remote sensing equipment; and GPS technology are also ideal applications for the F300 oscillators.

Models with stabilities from ±20 ppm to ±100 ppm can operate in temperatures ranging from -10°C to +70°C while models with stabilities from ±25 ppm to ±100 ppm operate in an extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. Storage temperature range is -55°C to +125°C.

Start up time is 5 mS. The F300 series contacts feature a gold finish and the moisture sensitivity level (MSL) is 1.

Pricing for the F305R-25MHz starts at $0.95 per piece for 10,000.  Delivery is 8 weeks ARO.
