Crystal vs Ceramic Resonator?

Discussion in 'Electronic Repair' started by Michael Kennedy, Mar 29, 2006.

  1. What is the difference between a crystal and a ceramic resonator?

    Someone told me that this is a crystal resonator.??

    I don't know if the one I have has a cap or not in it and I can't seem to
    find any info on the part.. It lists its frequency 24.000 and then it lists
    something else KDS 2K

    Would this be the same as the one in the picture?

    Not enough information here (for me) but in general, ceramic resonators are
    lower-cost replacements for quartz crystals. The quartz units have higher Q
    and can have better temperature stability, but those issues are not always
    important.

    KDS refers to the manufacturer, Daishinku Corp. "2K" appears to be a
    lot number.
