Rutronik adds Epson crystal series

Three crystal series, following the trend for smaller sizes, released by Epson are now available from distributor, Rutronik.

The 2.0 x 1.6mm size TCXO/VC-TCXO series TG2016SBN contains the built-in second generation of Epson internal IC. It is claimed to be the TCXO with the lowest cost offered by the company. The series covers a supply range of 1.7 to 3.63V as well as the industrial temperature range of -40 to +85°C. It can be used for applications like navigation, asset tracking and other frequency sensitive applications.

Measuring only 1.6 x 1.0mm, the FC1610AN kHz crystal series is the smallest kHz crystal offered by the company. It has a frequency of 32.768kHz and can be used in any space-critical application.

The small size MHz crystal series FA2016AN in 2.0 x 1.6mm case size comes with its own developed ceramic package. It is available for frequencies from 24 to 54MHz. Compared to the equivalent Epson MHz crystal series FA-128, the FA2016AN series is cheaper and its production and cost is less dependent from ceramic package suppliers. It is suitable for space critical consumer or industrial applications, says the company.
