Smartphones and Tablets

Crystals are needed in mobile devices for the necessary timing reference and temperature compensation that improve reference frequency accuracy, enabling integrated features like internet access, navigation, camera and Bluetooth. Crystals are also used in the latest smart phones for features like face recognition that use AI-enabled chipsets.

Smart Homes, Smart Cities, Image Recognition

Frequency control devices are extremely important for any wireless smart communications network regardless of protocol, including ZigBee, Z-Wave, UWB and WiFi. These systems include monitoring, cameras and sensors connected to a display unit or a device for monitoring or control. They are used to monitor and control lighting, climate, entertainment systems, appliances and security.

Smart Wearables

Compact crystal oscillators are designed for use in very low power wearable applications, including smart watches, glasses and other digital imaging devices to monitor health and wellness, motion and fitness, as well as location.

VRVirtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR)

Due to their ultra-small size and low load capacitance that minimizes energy use, quartz crystals are ideal for use with virtual reality electronics, including VR and AR devices.

Consumer Video and Audio Systems

Crystals and oscillators are used in consumer video and audio systems, like smart TVs, Bluetooth headphones, HD streaming devices, projectors, smart speakers, wireless earphones and hearing aids, which require low power frequency control to ensure optimal operation.
