According to research, the demand for Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning equipment (HVAC) has increased globally during 2021.
Over the past two years, supply chain challenges have significantly complicated high-volume availability of the industry-standard 3.2 x 1.5 mm and 2.0 x 1.2 mm tuning fork quartz crystals with lower plating loads.. However, Abracons 1.6 x 1.0 x 0.5 mm ABS05 plated at 4.0pF can easily replace the larger-sized alternatives in current energy-saving MCUs and other gorilla chip set designs without sacrificing performance requirements or adding extra design pressure. It can also enable further reduction of consumed surface area in newer designs. Furthermore, designers might want to consider a comprehensive, all-encompassing land pattern in their designs.
