Intertechnology Inc. introduced two new series of ultra-miniature SMD quartz
crystals with wide frequency ranges of 12 MHz to 25 MHz. To enable smaller end
products, the XT23 and XT35 offer ceramic packages measuring 3.2 mm by 2.5 mm
and 5.0 mm by 3.2 mm, respectively. Both devices feature a low profile of 0.8
wide frequency range, frequency tolerance of ± 30 ppm at + 25 ºC, and compact
size, the devices released today are optimized for handheld electronic devices
such as PDAs, GPS units, MP3 players, notebook computers, PCMCIA cards, and
Bluetooth communication equipment.
crystals operate over a temperature range of 0ºC to + 70ºC, with a temperature
stability of ± 50 ppm. The XT23 offers ESR from 70 Ω to 100 Ω while the XT35
provides ESR from 70 Ω to 80 Ω. The devices feature seam sealing and emboss
taping, and they are compliant to RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC.
U.S. delivery is $0.46 per piece.
Samples and production quantities of the quartz crystals are available now,
with lead times of eight weeks.
