Z-Series clock oscillators use Kyocera’s unique platform structure, which combines a fixed size head unit (consisting of a quartz crystal, ceramic package and driver IC) mounted to a glass epoxy substrate in a variety of standard dimensions. The use of a common head unit reduces lead times by eliminating the need to design the IC, package and crystal elements individually for each of the standard dimensions.


The new Z-Series is available in two types: “Standard Frequency Stability,” for emphasizing quick delivery; and “High Frequency Stability,” for applications requiring tighter frequency tolerance over a wide temperature range. Both types are qualified to the Automotive Electronics Council’s reliability standards AEC-Q100 (for ICs) and AEC-Q200 (for passive components). For more info, visit Kyocera.
