Murata announces an addition to its XRCGB-M series of hybrid crystal resonators. The XRCGB26 device adds the nominal 26 MHz frequency to the comprehensive range of frequencies already supported by the XRCGB-M series.
The new device has a frequency tolerance of less than ± 30 ppm and an operating range from -30 degrees C to + 85 degrees C with a frequency shift of ± 40 ppm. Frequency aging is less than ± 5 ppm per year.
The XRCGB-M range also benefits from a tiny package size of just 2.0 x 1.6 x 0.7mm, comparing favourably to its quartz crystal equivalents. The series is available in frequencies of: 24, 25, 26, 27, 27.12, 30, 33.86, 40 and 48 MHz, with additional frequencies under development.
Murata's hybrid crystal resonator family features a quartz crystal element manufactured by Tokyo Denpa alongside Murata's ceramic resonator technology in the same package, using Murata's production technology to create a device smaller and lower cost than a quartz crystal whilst maintaining the precision of quartz.
Murata's hybrid crystal resonators now all feature four connection pads on the base to make them a more direct replacement for quartz. All Murata's hybrid crystal resonators are RoHS compliant.
