The world's smallest ultralow power-driven crystal clock oscillator contributes to extended battery life of portable devices
Recently, eco-friendly products have become popular to meet the social needs of “Carbon reduction” and “Environmental load decrease”. For this reason, there is a strong demand for electronic components constituting these products to be environment-friendly. Due to the requirements for extended battery life and multi-functionality, energy conservation through both miniaturization and power saving is desired, especially in compact devices such as mobile phones or handheld devices. NDK has previously developed “NZ2520SF” crystal clock oscillator, and we have developed a smaller sized crystal clock oscillator “NZ2016SF” to achieve the market needs of “miniaturization and low-power”.
NZ2016SF has miniaturized about 50% in capacity and weight, comparing to our previous model (NZ2520SF:2.5 × 2.0 × 0.9 mm) without impairing the quality and “ultra-low power driven” technology. In addition to these features, NZ2016SF has achieved environmental load decrease.
This product helps achieve low-power operation, has significant increase in battery life and reduction in environmental load especially in mobile devices such as multi-functional mobile phones, silicon audio players, PND (Personal Navigation Device) and notebook computers. Due to its wide frequency range (1.5 to 50MHz), it can be used in a wide range of electronic devices other than mobile applications, leading to environmental load reductions in various fields in the electronics industry.
