Crystal Units for automotive applications




Murata's crystal units for automotive applications (XRCHA Series, XRCGB Series) use the world's first unique packaging technology that is not offered in existing crystal units. This packaging technology provides excellent quality, mass productivity and cost performance.

Advantages of Murata's crystal units for automotive applications

●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.

●Supports on-board Ethernet/FlexRay for next generation vehicle communication standards!
Oscillator total tolerance specification for in-vehicle Ethernet (PHY) : ±85ppm
Oscillator total tolerance specification for FlexRay : ±250ppm

●Adopted high reliability package cultivated by CERALOCK®!
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!
This is Murata's patent technology (Patent 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)

●Supports product specifications according to the user's needs!
Load capacity (Cs) : 6pF, 8pF, 10pF and others available.
In addition to the above, we also offer a product lineup compatible to high drive level (600µm) and +125°C / +150°C.

●Satisfies the reliability guarantee required for automotive applications (AEC-Q200)!
* Applicable series: XRCGB_F_A / XRCHA_F_A

Testing conditions

High temperature exposure test :+125°C, 1000h

Temperature cycling test :-55 to +125°C, 1000cycle
