electronica 2014 Company Profile Micro Crystal – Swiss Quality is an Attitude! Micro Crystal AG, a company of the Swatch Group Inc. Switzerland, was founded in 1978 in Grenchen, Switzerland, as a producer of Tuning Fork Crystals for watches. Today, Micro Crystal AG is a leading manufacturer of Miniature Tuning Fork Quartz Crystals (32 kHz to 250 MHz), Real Time Clocks, Oscillators and OCXOs for the world’s leading manufacturers of mobile phones, consumer products, computers, automobile electronics, watches, industrial controls, as well as medical implantable devices and other high-reliability product applications. With offices located around the globe, Micro Crystal AG provides in-depth support for our customers from design-in to mass production. Product Range: Real Time Clock Modules - RTC Modules 32.768 kHz Crystal embedded Crystals - Tuning Fork Crystals 10 kHz – 2.1 MHz - AT Crystals 8 MHz – 30 MHz - Inverted Mesa AT Crystals 30 MHz – 250 MHz Oscillators - Low Power Oscillators 32.768 kHz - Clocks up to 220 MHz - OCXOs up to 60 MHz Highlight: The RV-8803-C7 is the first high accuracy / temperature compensated RTC optimized for ultra low power consumption. The ultra low current consumption of 250 nA and low operating voltage down to 1.5 V significantly increases the operational life of backup supplies and allows for potential use of low cost MLCC capacitors instead of costly batteries or supercaps as a short term backup solution. All this while providing accuracy of ±3.0 ppm (±0.26 seconds/day) over a temperature range of 40 to +85°C. In addition to the lowest current and best accuracy of all temperature compensated RTCs, the RV-8803-C7 also has the smallest ceramic package in the industry with an integrated 32.768 kHz quartz crystal. The RTC’s accurate timekeeping in combination with it’s ultra low power consumption allowing simple power supply backup makes it ideal for a wide range of applications such as metering applications, embedded modules, data loggers, white goods, automotive, portable/wearable medical equipment and all types of POS systems. • Ultra-miniature ceramic SMD package: 3.2 x 1.5 x 0.8 mm • Very high accuracy ±3.0 ppm from -40 to +85°C • low current consumption of only 250 nA • Integrated 32.768 kHz Quartz Crystal • I²C interface • AEC-Q200 qualified Micro Crystal AG Muehlestrasse 14 CH – 2540 Grenchen - Switzerland www.microcrystal.com Tel.: +41 32 655 82 82 Hall A4 – Booth 206 REAL TIME CLOCK MODULE SPI & I2C INTERFACE Temperature Compensated up to +125°C, High Accuracy +/- 3.0ppm -40 to +85°C Ultra Low current consumption down to 50 nA SWISS MADE QUALITY MICRO CRYSTAL SWITZERLAND Micro Crystal AG Muehlestrasse 14 CH-2540 Grenchen Switzerland sales@microcrystal.com www.microcrystal.com 24 electronica 2014 Show Guide www.electronics-eetimes.com
