PCB Live exhibitor introduces ultra-miniature fundamental mode crystals

1 min read

New from PCB Live exhibitor Golledge Electronics is the GSX-113, an innovative addition to the company’s expanding range of fundamental mode crystals. What makes this one special is its size: available in an ultra-miniature 1.2 x 1.0 x 0.3mm 1210 form factor package, and in frequencies from 32 ~ 80MHz.

Golledge’s new GSX-113 is stated to be ideal for wireless communication applications, including tight board stacking and miniature devices. The company says that the ESR characteristics of the GSX-113 have also been kept to exceptionally low levels in line with the latest chipset industry demands.

Golledge says that its new cutting-edge crystal features superb stability characteristics including ±5ppm frequency tolerance, ±10ppm temperature stability over commercial operating temperature ranges, and excellent long term ageing of just ±1ppm over the first year. The GSX-113 is also available with extended operating temperature ranges as wide as -40°C to +85°C as required.

Samples of the GSX-113 – as well as many other leading Golledge products - are available to view on the company’s stand at the PCB Live event on 12th March.
