Have you noticed how difficult it seems to find transparent pricing for frequency control & crystal oscillator components? If so, you're not wrong. Traditionally, it has been difficult to find quick, standard pricing for all things frequency control. Instead, you're basically forced to go through the long quoting process to even get an idea of expected pricing. So why is this? In this post I'm going to explain why OCXO oscillator pricing has been traditionally hard to find, and how Bliley's innovative pricing approach will make your procurement process so much easier.

The Secrets of Traditional OCXO Oscillator Pricing
"Hidden" pricing in the oscillator industry mostly boils down to customization. Traditionally, frequency control and OCXO devices have been very high-performing, customized solutions. Being customized, it can be very difficult to give an estimated price right upfront. Customized, high-performance oscillators can have a very wide price range that all depends on many application specifications and needs including
- Center frequency
- Package size
- Power consumption
This has traditionally been the accepted way, and no one has really questioned it for decades... until now.
Bliley has innovated a new manufacturing process that allows for open, transparent pricing upfront. The main ingredient? Standardization. Let me explain...
We wanted to make the procurement process easier for everyone involved, so Bliley decided to take on a product standardization approach that would allow for immediate and transparent pricing for many of our parts.
Some people tend to assume that a standardized approach would sacrifice performance and quality. However, a top priority of ours is to make sure high quality and performance are maintained with all of our standardized parts.
One of the keys to our high-performing standard OCXOs are the types of crystals used inside the oscillator. All of our standard OCXOs use precision SC cut crystals. In a nutshell, SC cut crystals allow us to significantly improve oscillator aging and stability (without using EFC which can lead to long-term performance issues).
The bottom line is that in many cases, SC cut crystals can actually help reduce long-term costs and improve long-term performance. Sounds like a good deal to us!
Utilizing SC cut crystals (along with some other super secret manufacturing processes) allow us to provide low, immediate pricing while maintaining the performance and quality that has been expected from Bliley for over 90 years.
