Epson Toyocom announces world’s smallest 32.678-kHz Crystal Oscillator

Epson Toyocom has developed the world’s smallest 32.768-kHz crystal oscillator. The maximum dimensions of the new crystal oscillator, known as the SG-3050BC, are just 2.2 mm x 1.4 mm x 1.0t mm.
With a footprint and cubic volume that are 70% and 75% smaller, respectively, than its predecessor, the new crystal oscillator will help electronic equipment manufacturers further downsize their products while boosting performance. The SG-3050BC also outperforms the previous SG-3030 series, boasting an operating voltage range of 1.2 to 5.5 V and initial frequency tolerance of 5.0 ± 5.0 × 10-6.

Epson Toyocom’s SG-3050BC is total solutions that will help customers add value to their systems by allowing them to use space more efficiently in feature-rich electronic equipment. Samples of the SG-3050BC will be available from March 2009.
