Smyrna, Ga. Murata Electronics North America has expanded its SAW resonator product line with the addition of the SAR series. These devices are touted as the industry's smallest product in a 3.0 x 3.0mm package being mass produced for remote keyless entry (RKE) applications.
The low-profile SAR series resonators feature low-resistance (less than 1.5 dB in the 315 MHz band), narrow tolerance (±50 ppm) and high reliability. The resonators also exhibit high frequency stability, which allows the external components in the resonator circuit to be simplified, contributing to decreased production costs, said the company. These devices may also be used in tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), garage door openers and burglar alarms.
In addition, the SAR series is available in a variety of versions to cover a wide range of resonating frequencies from 300 MHz to 800 MHz. Click the link for additional electrical and mechanical data about the SAW resonators.
The SAW resonators are priced at $2.00 each in sample quantities. Delivery is approximately nine to 11 weeks.
