New Quartz Crystal (X Series) Is Smallest on the Market at 2mm x 2.5mm x 0.57mm and Also Fully RoHS Compliant
MMD Components (Monitor & Quartztek), a producer of frequency control devices, has introduced the smallest quartz crystal available in production quantities. Measuring only 2 x 2.5 millimeters, with an ultra-low 0.57-millimeter profile, MMD’s new X series is a surface-mountable crystal that can be used in any application where space is limited and a frequency reference required, such as Bluetooth devices, PDAs, cell phones and MP3 players. X series crystals are available with a wide frequency range of 16 to 60 MHz and a frequency tolerance/stability rate as high as ±50 PPM/±100 PPM. The units are fully RoHS compliant and compatible with Pb-free reflow profiles; feature ruggedized construction for extreme vibration and shock applications, allowing fundamental-mode operation to 60 MHz; and can operate in temperatures as high as 70ºC. Hermetically sealed in a 4-pad ceramic package, the crystals are delivered on tape and reel for easy pick and place.
