International Crystal plant tour

International Crystal Manufacturing (ICM) manufactures a wide selection of quartz crystals, precision crystals, oscillators, TCXOs / VCTCXOs, filters and QCM crystals. We would like to guide you around ICM and explain how crystals are produced.

If a crystal is subjected to an external pressure such as an electrical voltage, it would vibrate or oscillate a given number of times per second. The amount or number of vibrations each second would be dependent upon the thickness of the crystal. No matter how great or small this external pressure is, the crystal will always oscillate or vibrate the same number of times. The number of vibrations per second can range anywhere from 1,000 times per second to several million times per second.

This vibration is normally referred to as a "hertz". Since a million hertz per second would be very difficult to write or say each time we refer to a radio frequency, we normally express a frequency in kilohertz or megahertz. The latin word kilo means 1,000 and mega means 1,000,000.
