Crystal Products → Precision Inverted Mesa
Anderson Electronics, LLC manufactures inverted-mesa ring supported quartz crystal resonators. Inverted mesas, also called high frequency fundamental mode crystals, are manufactured by a process where the removal of material required to achieve the design frequency is accomplished by chemical milling. Chemical milling permits design frequencies exceeding those achieved through more tradition mechanical abrasion techniques. Fundamental modes are available from 30 MHz to 250 MHz third and fifth overtones are available from approximately 90 MHz to 250 MHz. Ring supported resonators are available as blanks and as sealed units in a variety of precision holders. Ring supported resonators offer unique performance advantages for specific applications. Applications include high frequency clock, wide deviation VCXOS and wide bandpass discrete crystal filters.
