Valpey Fisher Announces Miniature Hi-Rel/COTS
Oscillator with Wider Frequency Range
Delivers industry’s highest frequency in smallest package for
reliability amid extreme conditions
HOPKINTON, MA & BALTIMORE, MD – November 7, 2011 – Valpey Fisher
Corporation (NASDAQ: VPF), a leading provider of high performance
integrated products for timing and frequency control today announced it
expanded the frequency range offered in its VFH3225, the industry’s smallest
size High Reliability/Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) oscillator which offers
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 today and showcased at MILCOM 2011 booth #2025 in Baltimore, Maryland
USA, 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
