AUSTIN, TX – Abracon, LLC (Abracon), The Heartbeat of the IoT® a leading global manufacturer of frequency control, timing, synchronization, RF, connectivity and power components presents the perfect tool for estimating tuning fork crystal stability over temperature. Tuning fork quartz crystals operating at 32.768kHz typically present parabolic dependence between resonant frequency and temperature with the greatest deviation from center frequency occurring at the lowest and highest operating temperatures. Tuning fork crystals govern the real time and other time critical functions of our most common devices. For devices requiring precision and temperature compensation, knowing the exact curve of the temperature drift is important.
Although estimating the frequency over temperature drift of any tuning fork crystal can be done using datasheet parameters, this unique Excel based tool quickly estimates the minimum, maximum and typical drift for a given crystal series. Easy to use, selection of the crystal series and desired offset is all the is necessary to determine the center frequency of the crystal.
