Q-Tech Corporation has introduced the QTCC353 Series of miniature SMD crystal oscillators, which are designed to provide superior performance over MEMS devices in a wide-range of non-space military, communications, instrumentation, and avionics applications.

Their unique 3-point XO mount and miniature, ultra-low-profile (3.2 x 5 x 1.2mm) packaging provides the industry’s best combination of footprint/headroom, mechanical stability, and electrical performance. These devices also offer industry-leading mechanical and frequency vs. temperature stability, along with better vibration and shock tolerance than their MEMS counterparts.

The devices, housed in a hermetically sealed, ceramic package with gold contacts, are tested for MIL-STD-202 compliance for vibration (Method 204.D) and shock (Method 213.I).
