IC Matching Service Information

Description of IC – Timing Devices Matching and design tool.

Murata Icon X What is an “IC Matching Service” ?

When using an IC and a timing device in combination with each other, it is necessary to select a suitable timing device and circuit constants according to the IC used and the appropriate frequency accuracy, and construct an oscillator circuit based on those values.

If the timing device is not appropriate, it is likely to stop oscillating or oscillate abnormally, preventing the equipment from operating normally.


●Acquired peace of mind●
  • Optimum circuit constants
  • Prevention of abnormal oscillation
  • Suitable Murata part number and specifications
  • Reduction of the evaluation period for the set
test items
To assist the customer in achieving this performance, Murata borrows the customer's mounted board, and offers the optimum recommended circuit based on our evaluation of IC matching.

Murata Icon X Design tool which utilized own evaluation data

Evaluation data of various IC is disclosed on the Internet as a design tool.
The matching service is used by customers in various fields, such as the automobile industry, for circuit design. It can be used as a reference at the initial stage of development and design.
Customers with the following questions read on!
"Is there an easier and quicker way to check matching?"
"It's troublesome to prepare the board and send it each time. Can't I eliminate the necessity of doing this?"
IC - Timing Devices Matching Search Tool
★ It's easy!
There is no need to prepare the board, register or download any data. Simply enter the name of the IC manufacturer and the part number of the IC product.
★ It's fast!
The results are displayed immediately.

★ It gives you the peace of mind!

The results are disclosed based on the values acquired by actually carrying out an evaluation.


* More than 35,000 cases are currently displayed on the Internet. (As of November 2016) The results of evaluating new ICs will be progressively disclosed.

* The oscillator circuit constants are evaluated using a circuit designed by us.
The evaluation results may differ form time to time depending upon the wiring pattern of the actual board used by the customer and the noise environment in which the board is installed.

Murata Icon X Development to Crystal Units

We have an extensive lineup of timing devices ranging from ceramic products to crystal units, enabling them to be used in high performance and high precision applications.

We have developed our matching evaluation technology from years of experience in performing a very similar matching service for our CERALOCK® and Crystal Units, which is completed by proposing recommended circuit conditions for every evaluation.
This data is then stored in the above mentioned "IC-timing device matching search tool".

We have also disclosed a list of crystal oscillators recommended by IC manufacturers.
