Vishay Intertechnology's New Ultra-Miniature SMD Quartz Crystals Combine Low 0.8 mm Profile With Wide 12 MHz to 25 MHz Frequency Range for Handheld Electronic Devices

MALVERN, PA--(Marketwire - Jul 7, 2011) - Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today 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 mm.

With their 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.

The quartz crystals operate over a temperature range of 0 ºC to + 70 ºC, with a temperature stability of 50 ppm. The XT23 offers ESR from 70 to 100 ohms while the XT35 provides ESR from 70 to 80 ohms. The devices feature seam sealing and emboss taping, and they are compliant to RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC.

Samples and production quantities of the quartz crystals are available now, with lead times of eight weeks. Follow Vishay quartz crystals at http://twitter.com/vishayindust.
