FORT MYERS, Fla., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Fox Electronics, a leading global supplier of frequency control solutions, recently increased its range of watch crystals with a new tuning fork. The FX122 is approximately 33% smaller than previous models, measuring just 2.1 mm x 1.3 mm with a very low profile of 0.6 mm. The miniature size of the new FX122 watch crystal makes it ideal for portable and handheld devices where space is critical.
With a frequency of 32.768 kHz, the new surface mount device (SMD) is optimized for a standard 12.5 pF load capacitance, with an optional load capacitance of 9 pF available. Frequency tolerance is +/-20 PPM at 25 degrees C (77 degrees F) and frequency stability is -0.04 PPM / (change in Celsius degrees)(2) over the standard operating temperature of -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C (-40 degrees F to 185 degrees F).
Turnover temperature range is +20 degrees C to +30 degrees C (68 degrees F to 86 degrees F) and storage temperature is -55 degrees C to +125 degrees C (-67 degrees F to 257 degrees F). Maximum equivalent series resistance of the new FX122 crystal is 90 k ohm and insulation resistance is 500 megaohm at 100 V(DC). Aging is +/- 3 PPM per year. The termination finish is gold over nickel.
The new watch crystal is RoHS-compliant and comes standard in a 3,000-unit tape and reel for automatic assembly systems.
Pricing for a FX122 is $0.53 in quantities of 102K. Delivery is stock to 12 weeks ARO.
