IQD Frequency Products has launched one of the world’s smallest quartz crystals, the IQXC-240, which measures just 1.2 mm x 1 mm with a height of only 0.33 mm. The IQXC-240 is available in frequencies between 36 and 80 MHz and is ideal for applications where space is at a premium such as IoT, VGA, USB and Wi-Fi.
Frequency stabilities can be specified as low as ±10 ppm over the commercial temperature range of -20°C to 70°C and ±15 ppm over the industrial temperature range of -40°C to 85°C. The frequency tolerance can be specified down to ±7 ppm. In line with the requirements of the latest generation of microprocessors, the load capacitance can be as low as 5 pF.
Housed in a 4-pad ceramic hermetically sealed package with an electron beam sealed metal lid, which helps to minimise the EMI radiation. The product is designed to be able to withstand shock levels of up to 1000G in accordance with IEC 60068-2-27. The IQXC-240 is available on tape and reel in accordance with EIA-481D.
