MMD Adds Ultra-Small, RoHS-Compliant Quartz Crystals with Wide Frequency and Operating Temperature Ranges
RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. October 31, 2007 - MMD Components (Monitor & Quartztek), a producer of frequency control devices, has introduced an ultra-miniature quartz crystal that has a wide frequency range of 16 MHz to 60 MHz and can operate in temperatures as low as -40ºC and as high as +85ºC.
Measuring only 2 x 2.5 millimeters, with a maximum profile of just 0.55 millimeters - the smallest available in production quantities - MMD's new X series crystals are hermetically sealed in a 4-pad ceramic package and delivered on tape and reel for easy pick and place. They can be used in any application where limited space is a key issue and a frequency reference is required, such as Bluetooth devices, PDAs, mobile phones and MP3 players.
The crystals have a frequency tolerance/stability rate as high as ±50 PPM/±100 PPM; are 100% RoHS compliant; and feature ruggedized construction for extreme vibration and shock applications, meeting MIL-STD-883 and MIL-STD-202 specifications.
Availability for the new X series quartz crystals is stock to 14 weeks, with prices starting at $0.95 in 1K quantities.
