Ultra-miniature crystal package with 0.5mm profile

August 21, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
IQD Frequency Products' IQXC-42 quartz crystal measures 2.0 x 1.6mm with a height of only 0.5mm. The new ultra-miniature model is especially suitable for many portable applications such as hand held inventory control devices, battery powered telemetry equipment, notebook computers and surveillance devices.

The crystal is available in frequencies between 20 MHz and 50 MHz and operates over the full industrial temperature range of -40 to +85C. Frequency stabilities can be specified as low as ±10ppm over the commercial temperature ranges. In line with the requirements of the latest generation of microprocessors the load capacitance can be as low as 8pF.

Housed in a 4-pad ceramic package with a hermetically sealed metal lid which helps to minimise EMI radiation, the product is designed to able to withstand shock levels of up to 1000G in accordance with IEC 60068-2-27. The IQXC-42 is available on tape and reel for automatic assembly as well as loose in bulk pack for low volume prototypes.
