Business Editors

ELKHART, Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 24, 2001

CTS Corporation (NYSE:CTS) announced today it has added a 106.25 MHz frequency clock to its popular CB3 family of standard 5mm x 7mm hermetically sealed ceramic clock oscillators. The 106.25 MHz frequency is required for Fibre Channel clocks used in data storage network applications. Fibre Channel is a specification for dedicated, high-speed data storage and retrieval networks that operate independently of data format. The estimated worldwide market potential for Fiber Channel clocks approximates $50 million annually.

CTS CB3 106.25 MHz clocks deliver the performance required to support Fibre Channel clock oscillators' speed, volume and stability characteristics for data storage networks. Available in stability grades of 25, 50 and 100 ppm, CTS Fibre Channel clock oscillators are offered for 3.3 and 5.0 Vdc systems, and draw 40 and 50 mA, respectively. As with other CTS CB3 clocks, the output is CMOS compatible, and also includes a tristate output enable/disable feature. Temperature range options are 0 to 70 degrees C for commercial applications, and minus 40 to plus 85 degrees C for industrial operating conditions. The 4-pad, 5mm x 7mm CB3 surface mount oscillator package is fully compatible with SMT pick-and-place assembly equipment, and is supplied in standard tape-and-reel form.

Sample CTS Fibre Channel clock oscillators are available now from CTS stock. Volume production quantities are competitively priced under $3.50 each, and available for delivery in 6-8 weeks from receipt of order. For complete technical data, samples and/or pricing, please contact your local CTS Sales Representative or Customer Service at CTS Frequency Products, Phone: (717) 243-5929, Fax: (717) 243-0079, or visit the web at
