Equivalent Circuit Modelling of Quartz Crystals


In this document, Christoph Büsel, a teacher at a technical college in Austria is sharing the preparation for a lesson on Quartz Crystal Equivalent Circuit Modelling with us.

The document contains the theory about modelling a quartz crystals and explains practical measurement using the Bode 100 vector network analyzer.

The goal of this lesson about quartz crystals is to answer the following questions:

  • What is the serial resonance?
  • What is the parallel resonance?
  • What is the anti-resonance?
  • How does the Q range of quartz compare to a RLC resonance circuit?
  • Why is the quartz frequency 32.768KHz so popular?
