IQD's latest press release for the IQXC-25.
Measuring just 2.0 x 1.2mm and with a height of only 0.6mm, IQD’s 32.768kHz IQXC-25 watch crystal is ideal for applications where space on a PCB is at a premium. It is housed in a 2-pad ceramic package with an operating temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees C and a standard frequency stability coefficient of -0.03 ±0.01ppm/degrees C². Standard frequency tolerance is ±20ppm however ±10ppm can also be manufactured upon request whilst the load capacitance can be specified at 12.5pF, 9pF, 7pF or 6pF.
The IQXC-25 is ideal for the many applications related to the Internet of Things (IoT) where accurate time keeping and non-volatile data storage is required via a Real Time Clock (RTC). These include battery management, Bluetooth, POS terminals, smart meters, wearables and Wi-Fi.
The standard part numbers are: LFXTAL050789 (12.5pF), LFXTAL051643 (9pF), LFXTAL059461 (7pF) and LFXTAL065455 (6pF) and these are available on Tape and Reel (REEL) or on Cut Tape (CUTT).
