NEU ISENBURG, Germany, November 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The new quartz crystal SC-20S is another 32.768kHz model of SCX series by Seiko Instruments with smaller (2.05mm x 1.20mm), thinner (0.60mm) and 100% Pb-free SMD ceramic package. Thus SC-20S is qualified even more for portable and other applications demanding printed circuit boards (PCB) with very high component density.
SC-20S is available with a load capacitance of 7pF, 9pF or 12.5pF.
Quartz crystals are used as precise clock generators for low power systems like watches and other real-time clock (RTC) applications, watchdog timers (WDT) and for the secondary clock function of microprocessors in standby and sleep mode to minimize power consumption.
The SCX quartz crystals use a tuning-fork resonator processed in a photolithographic technology, which assures high reliability, low aging (3ppm/year) and excellent shock and heat resistance. Ion gun trimming method allows very tight frequency tolerance over a wide temperature range (-40°C to +85°C).
The SC-20S is available in high-volume quantities. Samples may be obtained from Seiko Instruments GmbH or their local representatives.
Seiko Instruments provides a Circuit Matching Service & Solution (CMSS) to all customers for design, evaluation and optimization of application specific oscillation circuits using SII quartz crystals.
