2016 Size Hermetically Sealed 20 ppm Quartz Crystal Resonator

The XRCGD series quartz crystal resonator from Murata Americas meets the strictest frequency tolerance requirements for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth®, and Radio frequency/baseband applications.  The solution provides design engineers with a hermetically sealed package that is compatible with industry standard 2016 package size  (measuring 2.0 x 1.6 x 0.45 mm), highly reliable, and offers a superior cost advantage over other similar sized hermetically sealed packaging used today. The new series achieves a total tolerance of +/-20ppm, nominal frequencies ranging from 24 MHz to 48 MHz, and an operating temperature of -30 °C to +85 °C.

The crystal unit was developed for wearable and handheld electronic devices using wireless communication functions. These devices can benefit from the size offered by a 2016 package, but often have to make do with larger and less expensive 3225 size crystal products.   Murata's XRCGD series builds off the company's proven Hybrid Crystal Resonator (HCR) line-up to deliver a hermetically sealed solution that allows such electronic devices to now achieve the size benefits of a 2016 package without the cost penalty.

The XRCGD series is available for samples, with mass production starting in Q2 of 2014.
