Small, ultra-thin SCX Series quartz crystals

July 17, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
Seiko Instruments has released the SC-32S ceramic SMD quartz crystal, a 32.768kHz quartz crystal is 100% Pb-free and suitable for automatic and high density surface mounting.

SC-32S is the first model of new SCX Series with very small (3.2 x 1.5mm) and thin (0.75mm) package size and it is available with a load capacitance of 7 pF, 9 pF or 12.5 pF. The SCX quartz crystals use a tuning-fork resonator processed in photolithographic technology, which assures high reliability, low ageing (3ppm/year) and good shock and heat resistance. An ion gun trimming method allows very tight frequency tolerance over a wide temperature range (-40°C to +85°C).
