While Murata’s ceramic resonators remain popular in the automotive market, this crystal unit allowed Murata to expand into the hard disk drive (HDD) and solid state drive (SSD) storage market, and is able to support wireless communication applications (devices equipped with BLE or ZigBee®) - where higher precision is required.Murata’s proprietary packaging technology enabled these compact high-quality (low ESR and impact-resistant) crystal units. The 1612-size and 2016-size employ the alloy fusion sealing method and contribute to the realization of more compact devices and modules; the crystal units find a broad range of applications such as low power wireless communication applications, mobile communication devices, automotive electronics, imaging devices (TV, LCD, Programmable Display), personal computing, healthcare/medical devices and wearbles.The crystal units are made of high stability piezoelectric quartz crystal that function as a mechanical resonator. With the advance of the IC technology, various equipment may be controlled by a single LSI integrated circuit, such as the one-chip microprocessor.Crystal units can generate clock signals which are essential for ICs and LSIs to operate, achieving high stability, adjustment-free performance and miniaturization.
