For several years now the term ‘Internet of Things’ has been in common parlance. Devices that are part of the ‘IoT’ can communicate with each other wirelessly. This is generally achieved using current standards such as WiFi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, and 5G. The Internet of Things also changes the requirements placed on the devices themselves. Today

Header Long-Term Aging of Quartz Crystals

Each application has a tolerance budget in terms of frequency deviation that must be adhered to even in the worst case scenario in order to ensure that the application functions. Developers must therefore be aware of all factors that can lead to frequency deviations. The sum of all worst-case scenarios of these factors must not

The previous blog post entitled: Ask the Product Manager: Are real rock crystals used for production of oscillating quartz crystals? covered the initial stages in the production of these small clocks. Quartz is artificially grown in autoclaves, reaching a weight of several kilos. From this point, however, we are still a few production stages away

The topic of component shortage is omnipresent. Nowadays, almost every electronic component is affected. The reasons? There are various of them and they include supply problems, as well as, correspondingly, the availability of the components. Others can be traced back to digitization, resulting in an increased number of final products and, due to this, a

Nowadays, Christmas without quartz crystals is unimaginable! Why? Even the modern time switches for outdoor lighting need a quartz to have an accurate time base. Also, a lot of our gifts are based on state-of-the-art electronics. Cell phones, smartwatches, PCs – they all need highly accurate frequency giving components to communicate with each other. Without

A blender in a kitchen

“If Apple made a blender, this would be it” – the British-American online news portal Mashable nailed it. When it comes to aesthetics and product design, the blender “Millo”, created by the Lithuanian start-up Millo Appliances, is very close to the great idol from Cupertino. Besides its award-winning design, the technology behind “Millo” is particularly
