Bomar Crystal Certifies that all SMD crystals, SMD Oscillators, TCXO, OCXO, VCXO, VCTCXO, Clock Oscilator and Quartz Crystal products meet the European Union Initiative for RoHS Compliance and the REACH initiative
Crystals (XTAL)- Properly cut and mounted a quartz crystal becomes a high quality timing device, that can be made to bend in an electric field, by applying a voltage to an electrode near or on the crystal. This property is known as piezoelectricity. When the field is removed, quartz will generate an electric field as it returns to its previous shape, this can generate a voltage. A quartz crystal behaves like a circuit composed of an inductor, capacitor and resistor, with a precise resonant frequency.
Quartz crystals are available at standard microprocessor frequencies or custom frequencies, with tight stabilities, in metal or ceramic holders and are available in thru hole or surface mount packages.
Monolithic crystal filters are available in through hole packages for a wide range of applications.For more than 50 years, Bomar has been manufacturing high quality frequency control products that meet or exceed customer specifications
