Quartz crystal resonators are thin slices of quartz that vibrate at a precise frequency when an AC signal of a matching frequencyis applied to them. They are commonly used in oscillator circuits for many different applications and can be found in everyday electronic devices for timing and frequency control.
The highly stable frequency and exceedingly high Q factor of quartz crystal resonators makes them ideal for use in clocks, watches, oscillators, and other frequency-sensitive applications.

Use of quartz crystals in electronic devices
Quartz crystals have a variety of uses and have many benefits.
One of the prime benefits that make quartz crystals so useful in the production of watches, radios and televisions is their stable and accurate frequency control. We can see this in both timekeeping and in IT and communications products:
- Timekeeping: Quartz tuning forks are used in quartz watches, clocks, and any other appliance that needs to keep track of the timeas they have a very stable and accurate frequency, making them ideal for timekeeping.
- Information Technology and Communications: Quartz is also used in a variety of technology applications, primarily in in electronic devices, as a precision frequency standard in radios and televisions, in fiber optic communication systems, and timing control of digital equipment.
As our technology has advanced and our dependency and use of electronics has rapidly increased, quartz crystals have become steadily more important, with billions of crystals now use in a wide range of appliances.
From computers and smartphones to radios and GPS equipment, quartz crystals are now a core component to many of the most used appliances that we depend on in our day-to-day life.
