Part finder Friday! 32Khz timer crystals for RTCs or power-saving microcontrollers

Pt 10709

32Khz timer crystals for RTCs or power-saving microcontrollers. If you have any sort of real time clock, they’ll want one of these 32 khz crystals. They are not temperature compensated so you may want to do that in software.

All this in the part finder! Use it, live it, love it!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. I’ve got a couple of those real-time crystals I obtained at some point in the past, and they’re in the same package as the one you picture above. Cylinder shaped. Any idea why that seems to be the most common package for that frequency of crystal, rather than the rounded box kind of shape used in most other through-hole crystals?

  2. Inventorjack: The reason probably has something to do with the fact that these crystals are used in watches, where space — especially height — is really critical. The part design is quite versatile allowing for example to embed the crystal in a slot in the PCB. Newer 32.768 kHz crystals often have a square cross-section, they are probably better suited for automated soldering.
