Most manufacturers know what a challenge it can be to find a long-lasting crystal oscillator—and they all know how obsolete components can send the supply chain into turmoil. There are a number of factors that can hasten aging in crystal oscillators, including mechanical stress, mass transfer, contamination, and of course the march of time. But when that EOL notification arrives for a crystal oscillator, sometimes in as few as 10 years after they began using it, OEMs and EMS continue to find themselves unprepared.
A Superior Crystal Oscillator Choice
Despite these challenges, manufacturers have another option with a manufacturer that understands their needs and challenges: Geyer Electronic.
Since 1964, Geyer Electronic has been recognized as one of the leading manufacturers of crystal oscillators, quartz crystals, frequency products, and ceramic resonators. All Geyer products are field-tested throughout several verticals within the electronics industry, earning a reputation for being cost-competitive and for supplying premium products. Geyer even goes so far as to guarantee long life-cycle support for crystal oscillators.
Geyer’s products have a wide reach across many industries, including automotive, computing, defense, industrial, medical, and telecommunications.
Geyer Crystal Named a “Product of the Year”
Along with its history of excellence, Geyer continues to get noticed by industry peers today. Elektronik, a professional German electronics journal that was first published in 1952, has awarded the Geyer KX-3T crystal model a “Product of the Year 2019.” The achievement was chosen by readers from a list compiled by the journal’s editor. “We always strive for excellence, so it means a lot to be recognized by others in the industry,” says Howard Longin of Geyer. The Geyer KX-3T crystal won 3rd prize in Passive Components category. It was nominated along with nine other top products, including a Bandpass filter from AVX, choke coils from Panasonic, and MLCC components from Murata, as well as other crystal and oscillator brands.
