W-5920 Oscillator Etching System

  • Oscillator SMD and VCXO devices are adjusted to target frequency by Ion Beam Etching of the crystal electrode material
  • The motional parameters of the crystal remain virtually unchanged
  • Up to sixteen parts are processed simultaneously for high system throughput
  • Small crystal electrodes are as easy to precisely adjust as large electrodes
  • Measured parameters are checked against easy to define Q.C. limits
  • SMD devices are continuously loaded, unloaded and adjusted to frequency with optional Elevator System
  • Two magazines each hold five transport boats
  • Transport boats carry SMD devices in two S&A pallets
  • Supports 8x10, 6x15 or custom pallets
  • 32 KHz Watch Crystal option available


Measurement Range: 32 KHz to 622 MHz
Etching Performance: ± 1 ppm typical final frequency
