Diodes Inc.’s Latest Crystals can Handle Automotive Applications

September 3, 2019 Alix Paultre

Diodes Incorporated introduced a series of automotive-compliant timekeeping crystals that can withstand harsh operating conditions such as in tire-pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), infotainment, telematics, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Capable of sustained operation at forces up to 1500g, XRQ crystals meet the SAE J2657 specification for TPMS. The crystals are also resistant to shocks up to 8000g.

XRQ crystals are compatible with ultrasonic welding manufacturing processes, are AEC-Q200 qualified, and available in Grade 1 (-40°C to 125°C), Grade 2 (-40°C to 105°C), and Grade 3 (-40°C to 85°C) temperature ranges. XRQ devices are PPAP capable and are manufactured in IATF16949-certified facilities.

XR32Q variants in the 3.2mm x 2.5mm outline are available in frequencies from 12MHz to 66MHz. 2.5mm x 2.0mm XR25Q devices are available from 16MHz to 66MHz, and the 2.0mm x 1.6mm XR20Q from 24MHz to 66MHz. The ceramic surface-mount packages are seam-sealed for hermeticity and mechanical integrity, and is available now from $0.40 for 3,000-piece quantities.
