Small and high-reliability packages

2.5x2.0mm/2.0x1.6mm sizes allow for ECU downsizing. These package sizes allow for a maximum of 60% downsizing capabilities compared to the 3.2x2.5mm size.

This package consists of a mechanical and weather resistant performance, along with excellent shock and drop shock resistance.

Never overlook the particles that obstruct oscillation

Murata’s original particle screening technology that ensures the screening of defective products, to which particles responsible for the deterioration of the characteristics of quartz crystals have adhered, during the production process. (Patent technology No. 4998620)

Introduction of termination design suitable for AOI

Murata adopted corner electrode terminations, which improve the visibility of the solder fillets while remaining compact.

※AOI : Automatic Optical Inspection (Board visual inspection)
