Time for a new deal

In order to meet demand for smaller, cheaper, quartz crystals, oscillators and real time clocks (RTCs) and to round off its portfolio of clock generators and RTCs, MSC Vertriebs has signed a pan-European distribution agreement with Swiss company Micro Crystal. This will enhance access to Micro Crystal’s miniature, energy-efficient quartz crystal devices, which are ideal for use in a variety of consumer and industrial applications.

Sales and marketing director frequency division at MSC, Rolf Aschhoff, said: “Micro Crystal demonstrates that particularly small and innovative quartz crystal products needn’t expensive. These products are therefore an ideal complement to our existing product portfolio.”

Marketing manager central Europe at Micro Crystal, Rüdiger Altschuh, added: “Support from a technically experienced and pan-European distribution partner like MSC – who is in a position to support customers in focus segments such as metering, healthcare, security and automotive – brings us closer to achieving our goal of increasing our European market share.”
