At 3.2 x 1.5 mm and a 0.9 mm profile, this is the smallest miniature watch crystal available. It is made for tight quarters, such as in portable or handheld devices. It has a frequency of 32,768 kHz, and the surface mount device offers a standard 12.5 pF load capacitance in the FX135A model, and an optional 9 pF capacitance in the FX135B. With a standard operating temperature of -40 to 85C (-40 to 185F), it has a frequency stability of -0.045 ppm/( C )2 and a frequency tolerance of +/-20 PPM at 25C (77 F). Turnover temperature range is 20 to 30C (68 F to 86 F) and storage temperature is -55 to 125C (-67 to 257F). It has a maximum equivalent series resistance of 50 k and insulation resistance of 500 M at 100 VDC. It has a gold-over-nickel finish, and aging is ±3 PPM per year. It is RoHS-compliant. The crystal comes standard in a 3,000-unit taps and reel.
Many of the new adhesives we're featuring in this slideshow are for use in automotive and other transportation applications. The rest of these new products are for a wide variety of applications including aviation, aerospace, electrical motors, electronics, industrial, and semiconductors.
Engineers throughout the US are in the midst of celebrating Engineers Week. But the celebration extends beyond the country’s borders, and even beyond the Earth itself; the crew of the International Space Station joined the festivities, too!
