A new highly compact crystal has been introduced by frequency control solutions manufacturer, Precision Devices Inc (PDI). The new C2 crystal consumes only 5.0mm of PCB real estate with extremely compact dimensions of only 2.5mm (l) x 2.0mm (w) x 0.55mm (d). The new C2 crystal provides a cost effective solution for applications that need the accuracy and precision of a system clock over a wide operating temperature range. The C2 crystal features a frequency range of 12MHz to 60MHz, a load capacitance of 8.0pF to Series, excellent stability characteristics of +/-10ppm per year and an extended operating temperature range of -40C to +85C. The C2 crystal is RoHS compliant and can be flow soldered.
Typical uses for the new C2 crystal include office electronics, audio visual systems, telecommunications equipment and Bluetooth applications. The new compact C2 crystal is available immediately from Precision Devices and through distribution and representative partners across Europe.
