Ultra-Small Crystal Units by Kyocera

As 5G, IoT, ADAS and AI technologies expand, electronics will need to be designed more compactly to meet the increased performance requirements. Engineers inventing new electronics will need the smallest and most efficient components to keep up with demand.

Kyocera's new generation of ultra-small crystal units (CX1008SB series) components - WINNER of the Japan Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) award for technology development in 2021 for achieving the same performance as our previous crystal units with a 33% reduction in size.

Normally, downsizing from 1.2 x 1.0mm to 1.0 x 0.8mm components would increase equivalent series resistance and require circuit board revision. However, by optimizing the design using piezoelectric analysis technology, Kyocera has downsized this device to 1.0 x 0.8mm with the same electrical characteristics as our conventional technologies. This allows engineers to incorporate the new CX1008SB series components without revising circuit designs.
