Technical Info - Crystals
The periodic repetition of an event within a unit of time. In an electrical circuit, the number of waves that pass a given point in one second. The number of times a resonator plate oscillated or vibrates in one second. The nominal or desire frequency specified by customer.
The amount of frequency deviation from the ambient temperature frequency. This deviation is associated with a set of operating conditions including: Operating Temperature Range, Load Capacitance, and Drive Level. This parameter is specified with a maximum and minimum frequency deviation, expressed in percent, % or parts per million, PPM.
The lowest frequency at which a resonator plate will oscillate. The physical dimensions of the plate determine this frequency.
