Nowadays, an ordinary daily routine is hardly conceivable without quartz crystals and oscillators: Alarm clock, coffee machine, e-bike, tablet. The little clocks not only make everyday work easier, but also provide a lot of fun in consumer electronics such as fitness trackers and game consoles. Without realizing it, we come into contact with quartz every day.
Our components can be found in the following consumer goods, among others:
Use of quartz in consumer products – What is important?
Consumer goods generally cover our daily, increasingly broad needs. And so the requirements for quartz crystals, which are found in consumer products, are many and varied.
For consumer electronics such as wearables, size is often the decisive factor: ever smaller components are required. Robustness counts in everyday objects: for household appliances such as washing machines, the installed clocks must be insensitive and shock-resistant. An automatic coffee maker demands the highest precision: consumers expect the right drinking temperature and perfect foam consistency every time.
