Quartz crystal shrinks in size

The new 32.768-kHz quartz crystal from Micro Crystal AG is housed
in a footprint that measures 1.6 x 1.0 mm with a maximum thickness of 0.35 mm.
The new tiny geometry enhances the circuitry in applications in which bending
radii are critical and complements the new bendable thin-film batteries
from Renata, said the company. Applications include smart cards,
e-textile, wearables (including activity bands), embedded modules, and health care.

The
low-frequency CM9V-T1A crystals (1.6 x 1.0 x 0.3 mm) are in high-volume
production ramp-up. The CM8V-T1A (1.6 x 1.0 x 0.3 mm) are in high-volume
production now. For more information, please see https://bit.ly/2FSVJr4.
