Crystal termsThere are 15 entries in this glossary.
|Shunt Capacitance (Co)||
The "static capacity" or shunt capacity of the electrodes, the holder and the leads. It is usually measured with an ungrounded case.
It is also possible for a crystal to vibrate at a frequency that is not related to its fundamental or overtone frequencies. Such undesired frequencies are referred to as spurious responses.Our processes are designed to minimise (not eliminate) the spurious responses and maximise the crystal activity at the desired frequency. The circuit designer should further guard against spurious responses by ensuring that the oscillator feedback circuit achieves its highest gain at the desired operating frequency.
|Storage Temperature Range||
The temperature range in which the crystal can be stored without damage,i.e. it will resume operation as normal once it is restored to within its operable temperature range.
