Automotive

If you want to drive a car without electronics today, you have to get a classic car. Modern cars cannot do without control and monitoring electronics. Electronics are revolutionizing the automotive sector and are not limited to the car, but also extend to parking, traffic control systems, transport logistics and car sharing. Electric drives and autonomous driving are trends that point to the future and require ever new product solutions – from us, too.

Automotive moves us!

The automotive industry is the artery of the German economy and one of the most important sectors worldwide. In this high-tech market, which is focused on maximum safety, the reliability of the components used is a basic requirement. Our crystals and oscillators offer the highest reliability in terms of temperature and humidity resistance, EMC compatibility and solderability. Many of our components are AEC-Q200 qualified and can be found in the Shop. Or available upon request.

AEC-Q200 components from GEYER Electronic

Particularly reliable AEC-Q200 qualified components are available from GEYER Electronic in a wide range of sizes and frequencies.

These oscillators and quartz crystals can be used not only in the automotive sector, but also in many other demanding industrial applications (e.g. IoT) where high reliability is a top priority.

GEYER components are designed for use in temperature ranges up to 150 °C and accuracy up to 30 ppm, helping to keep applications stable.

GEYER Electronic components can be found, among others, in:

  • Dashboards
  • Gear shifts
  • Air conditioners
  • Locking systems
  • Keyless Go
  • Lighting controls
