IQD Introduces Ultra-miniature Crystal Only 0.5mm High

IQD Frequency Products has launched one of the world’s smallest quartz crystals, the IQXC-42 which measures just 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 IQXC-42 crystal is available in frequencies between 20MHz and 50MHz 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 the 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.
