Technically speaking, ceramic resonators have similar functions when compared with quartz crystals, though their precision and frequency stability are slightly lower. In this regard, a quartz crystal could work in place of a ceramic resonator, but not vice versa.
So, why such an electronic component is still manufactured?
For communication devices, instruments and meters, quart crystals are preferred due to their high precision. However, if precision and frequency stability are not strictly required, a ceramic resonator would work as well, but it saves a lot of cost. For example, this cheap device is often seen in radios, televisions, electronic toys, lighting devices, TV remote controllers, home theater systems, small household appliances and other electronic products.
Our SMD ceramic resonator and thruhole ceramic resonator are highly appreciated by global customers, and this is the result of their outstanding properties as listed below.
1. Competitive price
2. High precision
3. Broad frequency range (1.8MHz-50MHz)
4. Wide operating temperature range
5. Small-sized body with 3 pins
6. RoHS compliant
