Valpey Fisher, a leading provider of high performance integrated products for timing and frequency control announced it
expanded the frequency range offered in its VFH3225, presented as the industry’s smallest size High Reliability/Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) oscillator with outstanding performance for military applications. The device now works from 25MHz to 160MHz. It delivers frequency stability of ±50 ppm over -55°C to +125°C in a miniature 3.2 x 2.5 mm SMD package. Military Group A, B, or C testing is available for the device.

Introduced and showcased at MILCOM 2011 in Baltimore, Maryland, the VFH3225 is a low-power device with CMOS output and supply voltages of 3.3V, 2.8V, 2.5V or 1.8V. Typical current consumption is as low as 8 mA and to minimize battery drain the device also has an output enable/disable option. Its miniature size, 3.2 x 2.5 mm,
allows for efficient use of board space and product designs expansion. “At Valpey Fisher, our products continue to evolve to meet the needs of many applications,” says John Fortune, Director of Sales and Marketing for Valpey Fisher. “The
new frequency range of the VFH3225 allows the part to be in more industrial and military designs where board space is at a premium and high temperature operation is a requirement.”

Hi-Rel/COTS oscillators are quartz oscillators that work in tough, environmentally challenging applications typically associated with mission-critical military uses. Valpey Fisher offers a complete line of Hi-Rel/COTS oscillators (XO and VCXO) available in industry standard packages including the latest 3.2 x 2.5mm design. By supporting wide
temperature ranges and high frequencies, Valpey Fisher’s Hi-Rel/COTS products offer a competitive advantage to our customers when confronted with extreme conditions.

Customers worldwide use Valpey Fisher Hi-Rel/COTS products to enable a wide range of applications for military communications, munitions and guidance systems.
