IC Evaluation 
Free service offered by Murata that verifies the operational combination of a specific ceramic resonator with a specific IC (microcontroller). The evaluation provides recommendations for external passive component values in the oscillation circuit (load capacitors, feedback resistors, and dumping resistor), as needed.


  • Murata's excellent package technology and high grade quartz crystal elements allows for robust and high reliability products
  • Compact size (2.0mm x 1.6mm x 0.7mm)
  • 4 terminal package
  • Tight tolerance of ± 50ppm (initial + temperature) min.
  • Available for consumer and industrial markets (automotive not supported at this time)
  • RoHS compliant
