ELECTRONICS: Fox Electronics recently released the new compact 3.3-volt F32K 32.768 kHz oscillator series as an expansion to its HCMOS oscillator offerings. The F32K oscillators draw a mere 1.5 µA of current and 250 nA of standby current, making them ideal for a wide variety of applications including real time clocks (RTCs), microcontroller sub clocks, sleep mode clocks and watchdog timer clocks.The new HCMOS oscillators come in a small 3.2 x 2.5 mm package and offer stabilities of +10 ppm to -90 ppm across a temperature range of -10 to 70C and +10 ppm to -140 ppm across -40 to 85C.
Fox’s new RoHS-compliant SMD oscillators feature a usable supply voltage of 1.5 to 5.5V (3.3V ±10 percent standard). Operating temperature is -40 to 85C and storage temperature is -55 to 125C. At 25C, frequency tolerance is +5 ±20 ppm. The HCMOS oscillators feature a gold termination finish.
Pricing for a F32K-327 oscillator is $1.31 in quantities of 50,000. Delivery is eight weeks ARO.
