KYOCERA AVX Launches New Circuit Matching Service

The new online tool and global design support service will help customers quickly and confidently select crystal timing devices optimized for their ICs.

KYOCERA AVX, a leading global manufacturer of advanced electronic components engineered to accelerate technological innovation and build a better future, has introduced a new circuit matching service designed to help customers quickly and confidently select suitable crystal timing devices.

When oscillator circuits aren’t optimized for customers’ ICs or timing devices, it can result in abnormal oscillations or even prevent oscillations, which could lead to device failure. The new online circuit matching service identifies KYOCERA AVX crystal timing devices recommended by leading global IC manufacturers to ensure that customers choose compatible timing devices. This assurance delivers critical benefits including improved oscillation start-up times and stable oscillations with higher gain margins, which are especially valuable in automotive industry designs.

The online tool features timing device recommendations for ICs manufactured by 40 leading global suppliers. The resulting circuit matching report provides customers with parameters including start-up time, drive level, initial frequency deviation, and negative resistance. It also provides recommended circuit constants for load capacitors, feedback resistors, and dampening resistors.

If additional support is needed, customers can have their PCBs evaluated by KYOCERA AVX technical support centers in the US, Germany, China, Korea, and Japan.

“We’re proud to launch our new circuit matching service and to provide our customers with confidence and peace of mind our crystal timing device devices,” said Bob Azuma, Marketing Director, KYOCERA AVX. “KYOCERA is a leading global developer of cutting-edge crystal timing devices. We offer ultraminiature and high-accuracy solutions, as well as products engineered for a wide range of operating temperatures, and our new online IC matching tool and global design support service will make it quicker and easier than ever for customers to identify their crystal components need to develop robust and reliable oscillation circuits.”
