Murata manufactures new crystal unit series for Bluetooth® devices

24/11/2016

Overview

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has enhanced its product lineup by commercializing a new
2.0x1.6mm size high-accuracy crystal unit (XRCGB-F-H series) for wireless devices. This product achieves +/-10ppm initial frequency tolerance and is compatible with Bluetooth® communication implemented by mobile devices / modules.

Background

In 2009, Murata began production of the XRCGB series and commercialized the XRCGB-F-P series for wireless devices (e.g. Bluetooth® Low Energy and ZigBee® devices). These crystals were limited to a frequency tolerance of +/-40ppm (initial tolerance +temperature characteristics).

Recently, the development and spread of wireless communication enabled devices has rapidly accelerated in the consumer product market, driving the growth of products equipped with Bluetooth® functions. This has been accompanied by a growing need to downsize mobile devices and wireless communication modules. Murata has now achieved a frequency tolerance of +/-20ppm in the compact 2.0x1.6mm size, which allows for mounting in Bluetooth® devices previously unachievable by existing product lines.


Features

With a unique packaging technology unavailable to current crystal unit manufacturers, these components excel in quality, volume production capability, and cost performance. The products feature remarkable compactness, intended to contribute to increasingly higher-density mounting and lower profile assembled devices.

Achieves an RoHS directive compliant lead-free (Phase 3) crystal unit

Enables lead-free solder mounting


Applications

Bluetooth® enabled devices
(e.g. headsets, audio devices, modules, wearable devices, and audio visual devices)
