2011-04-01 Murata announces an addition to its XRCGB-M series of hybrid crystal resonators

The XRCGB26 device adds the nominal 26 MHz frequency to the comprehensive range of frequencies already supported by the XRCGB-M series. The new device has a frequency tolerance of less than ± 30 ppm and an operating range from -30 degrees C to + 85 degrees C with a frequency shift of ± 40 ppm. Frequency aging is less than ± 5 ppm per year. The XRCGB-M range also benefits from a tiny package size of just 2.0 x 1.6 x 0.7mm, comparing favourably to its quartz crystal equivalents.
