IoT Optimized Quartz Crystal Series with Low Load Capacitance and ESR

Abracon has launched a new IoT optimized quartz crystal series with the lowest CL (Load Capacitance) and lowest ESR available on the market. The ABMxW and ABSxW series; combines the world's lowest CL and lowest ESR available for energy saving processors, MCUs, RF chipsets, and real time clocks required for the Internet of Things (IoT), wearables, and low power portable applications.

The launch of the ABMxW and ABSxW series results in a comprehensive family of crystals, addressing the leap towards lower power. Oscillators within next generation energy saving MCUs and chipsets are failing to drive traditional crystals with higher CL and ESR. Reducing the load capacitance to a new industry level of 4pF for MHz crystals and 3pF for tuning fork crystals, while simultaneously providing guaranteed low ESR, enables operation with design margin for many chipsets starved of gain and reduced transconductance (gm). These optimized crystals ensure the crystal oscillator design retains enough margin to operate over temperature and across all process and voltage corners.

According to Juan Conchas, Director of Marketing for Abracon - The IoT, wearables, and portable markets demand the power savings achieved with next generation ICs. Those ICs directly benefit from this industry leading series of low CL crystals.

The ABMxW and ABSxW series are offered in a variety of package, stability and tolerance options down to +/-10ppm. A comprehensive offering overall operating temperatures up to -40°C to 125°C makes these crystals suitable for both consumer and industrial designs. Click here to know more.
