Yes, we do buy Racon space qual. TO-5 crystals now & then, but we build our own oscillators around them. :-) But I want to stay out of this. Gerhard

Interesting. It's a lot of work. One of the key issues, is simply having the test equipment. Takes a lot of time and procedures to measure response over temperature in mass production. Thermal mechanics is a big problem. I avoid that bit of it myself... -- Kevin Aylward http://www.anasoft.co.uk - SuperSpice http://www.kevinaylward.co.uk/ee/index.html
