Epson announces new, efficient and energy-saving quartz crystal for IoT, wearables and consumer electronics
Epson FC2012AN and FC3215AN families provide developers with broader market opportunities with trusted technology in smaller form factor

SYDNEY, 25 August 2022 – Epson has introduced the FC2012AN and FC3215AN –two new families of quartz crystal units that deliver very low equivalent series resistance (ESR) and extremely tight frequency tolerance in an ultra-compact form factor. Equipped with a newly redesigned crystal element based on Epson’s in-house design and decades of production technology expertise, these crystals are ideal for a variety o


The new Epson FC2012AN and FC3215AN quartz crystal units are very robust, offering a very low ESR of 35kΩ (typ) and support a wide operating temperature range from -40 to 105 degrees Celsius which is a critical for portable electronics in extremely space constrained applications.

In addition, these crystals deliver a fixed frequency tolerance of ±20ppm. The FC2012AN is 2.0 x 1.2mm in size, and the FC3215AN is 3.2 x 1.5mm.

Developers of cutting-edge technology always look to integrate higher efficiency and energy-saving designs into their products and Epson’s new FC2012AN and FC3215AN flagship crystal families deliver in both areas, enabling customers to make smaller products that use less energy.

Epson is a leading supplier of kHz-band crystal units and also offers a lineup of oscillators with built-in oscillator circuit ICs and real-time clock modules with built-in real-time clock ICs.
