Fort Myers, FL April 17, 2005 -- Fox Electronics, America's leading supplier of frequency control products, has expanded the recently released FQ series of all-quartz crystal packaging technology to include a 5.0 mm x 3.2 mm package size. The FQ5032, which boasts an extremely low profile of 0.8 mm, is ideal for a wide range of portable applications, including handheld devices such as such as PDA, MP3, scanners and GPS.

In addition, compared to ceramic packaging, the FQ series offers a lighter weight and a lower profile.

Standard stability is ¡À30 ppm at temperatures from 0¡ãC to 70¡ãC (32¡ãF to 158¡ãF), with tighter stabilities available on special order. Extended temperature versions for use from -40¡ãC to 85¡ãC (-40¡ãF to 185¡ãF) are also available.
The new FQ5032 is fully RoHS compliant, offers complete pad compatibility with existing ceramic packages, and is available in two- or four-pad configurations.
