Single chip clock oscillator

The new ACT9325WC single chip, 32.768kHz clock oscillator from Acal Technology is optimised to increase reliability and reduce component count.

The device comes in a 3 x 2.5mm footprint and is designed as an alternative to 32.768kHz oscillator circuits based on multiple discrete devices. It features an AT precision cut quartz blank which is optimised to achieve stability between ±20 and ±100ppm. According to Acal, it eliminates the need for frequency matching of discrete crystals.

To extend battery life in handheld applications, the ACT9325WC features low power consumption of 0.6µA for the 2.5V device and 1.0mA for the 3.3V version. Two operating temperature ranges available: -20 to 70°C and -40 to 85°C.
