Crystals for demanding requirements

  • Smallest possible sizes

  • Reliable signal transmission

  • Standard tolerances of only +/-10 ppm at +25 °C → more accurate switching due to tighter basic tolerance

  • Standard tolerances of only +/-15 ppm at -40 °C to +85 °C → lower deviation in the temperature range

  • Low ESR values → lower current consumption of the circuit due to better transient response and lower power requirements

  • Extended temperature ranges from -40 °C to +150 °C → for automotive and special applications

  • Low aging of only +/-2 ppm in the first year

  • Long-term aging guarantee for certain applications such as smart metering

  • AEC-Q200 qualified crystals for automotive applications can be found in our Shop, currently on request.

What are Quartz Crystals?

A quartz crystal is based on an artificial quartz crystal and serves as an electronic component for oscillator circuits, generating electrical oscillations with a defined frequency. Its operation is based on the principle of electromechanical resonance of the installed piezo-electric and quartz crystal contacted with electrodes.

Due to the piezo-electric properties of quartz, it performs precisely defined oscillations (resonance) under the influence of alternating electrical voltages. Electrically, the quartz then behaves like an oscillating circuit with high Q and thus acts as a clock generator in many applications with the appropriate circuitry.

What are Quartz Crystals needed for?

Quartz crystals are used in circuits where a very accurate and constant frequency is required, e.g. in most transmitters, in clocks, microcontrollers, cell phones, computers as well as in frequency counters and digital signal generators.

A quartz crystal alone determines only the frequency. Since a quartz crystal in itself is neither an oscillator nor a clock generator, it must be operated in an appropriate circuit to represent a crystal-stabilized oscillator circuit (crystal oscillator).
