Posted: 1st September 2020
Quartz crystals are widely used in electronic applications because of their accurate frequency. Thanks to IoT, 5G and Industry 4.0, the demand for highly precise clock frequencies is increasing dramatically. However, by making a few mistakes during the design-in process the entire frequency accuracy of the quartz crystal can be ruined. This blog will focus on the… Read More
