Discover our range of technologies
Quartz crystals are manufactured for frequencies in the kilohertz and megahertz range with standard and custom specification options.
Quartz crystals are generally more accurate and temperature stable than ceramic resonators. This tight stability makes them suitable for a vast array of markets and applications such as consumable goods, RF and wireless communications, IoT and telemetry devices, as well as medical and industrial applications.
Our leading-edge quartz crystal products from ACT & Tai-Saw offer both industry standard kHz and MHz crystals, frequency ranges, and package sizes/types, as well as custom, high-precision, low-ageing, tight frequency stability, and tolerance solutions for more demanding applications. We also have extended operating temperature ranges from -40 up to 125°C which are AEC-Q200 compliant to meet automotive industry requirements.
Real time clocks (RTC’s)
Real-time clocks combine a 32.768kHz crystal with a CMOS based oscillator and RTC IC inside a miniature SMD ceramic package.
An RTC saves power, provides superior accuracy, reduces component cost and testing, and simplifies your system design by eliminating the need to design oscillator circuits and adjust clock accuracy.
The compact package sizes and easy integration allow you to achieve a far lower power consumption than circuits implemented with microcontrollers, allowing for extended battery life and the ability to use board space more efficiently.
Real-time clocks are ideal for hand-held and stand-alone applications such as POS terminals, metering, data logging and security alarms where low power consumption is critical.
Additional RTC features such as timestamp, power switch, event counters and trickle charge make devices ideal for medical applications like drug dispensing, blood pressure meters and defibrillators.
