Precision Crystals have low-profile, surface mount enclosure.

August 1, 2016

Assembled in vacuum for maximized Q values and phase noise, SMP-8 (8–130 MHz) and SMX (6–220 MHz) measure 8.0 x 7.2 x 2.3 mm, utilize braze seal, and can be made with custom specifications for precision SC cut, AT cut, and IT cut crystals. Heat transfer properties of 4-point mount make these products suited for OCXO designs. Additionally, thermal transfer properties and Q of SMX-8 can improve thermal perturbation levels. Options include high-temperature versions and internal thermistor.
