32 Quartz Crystal Unit Manufacturers in 2024 ? Good!
« on: March 06, 2024, 2232 UTC »
https://us.metoree.com/categories/7177/   I was asking folks, a couple of years back, about the time that Jan Crystal and ICM went bye-bye, about domestic crystal companies. And, by accident I came across the preceding link. Good.
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

All of the companies on that list are large manufacturers located overseas.  No doubt Kyocera or Abracon can make you an SMD crystal, but you'll have to order 100,000 units.

Domestically, you can try Bomar.  If its a common part, they can job shop it overseas and have them made in small quantities.  In this day though, better to look at other options than crystals.
