Many applications require the crystal to function in a vibrating environment. The vibrating environment may be the result to the crystal being placed near vibrating equipment or machinery or in a vehicle being driven over various road conditions. Vehicular, aircraft and space-launch environments are several of the most severe vibration environments for quartz crystal resonators,
Vibration has the potential to fracture or completely breaking the quartz wafer, damage the wafer to lead/mount interface and cause vibrational anomalies such as unwanted side-bands and a degradation in phase noise performance.
Crystal designs can optimize the internal wafer mounting structure
to increase a resonatorís immunity to vibration.
