NDK
crystal devices

are indispensable for the daily operation of society

NDK crystal devices are used virtually in every type of electronics from mobile phones, computers, and home appliances to automobiles, game consoles, digital cameras, and medical devices. Crystal devices is the reference source to enable the accurate transmission and processing of the vast amounts of information by using signals from accurate and stable vibrations. Thus, crystal devices play an important role in controlling the inner movements of electronics products.
We introduce the latest crystal devices in the midst of major changes underway, focusing on the automotive market where the growing number of self-driving vehicles and vehicles equipped with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are now in full swing and on the telecommunications market with the spread of 5G technology.

No.1 global market share in crystal devices contributing to the automobile revolution

No.1 global market share
in crystal devices contributing

to the automobile revolution

NDK has been developing crystal devices for automotive applications since the beginning of the move toward the electrification of automobiles in the early 1970s, and signed a contract in 1983 to supply crystal devices to Delco Electronics, an affiliate of General Motors in the United States. The world took notice, and NDK gained clients worldwide, including NIPPONDENSO (now DENSO Corporation) in Japan, making NDK the pioneer company to supply crystal devices for automotive applications.

Japan's sole mass-producer of OCXO
for 5G base stations
for the world market

The use of 5G is not limited to smartphones. 5G infrastructure consists of a vast network of base stations. NDK is supplying crystal devices such as TCXOs (temperature compensated crystal oscillators) and VCXOs (voltage control crystal oscillators) with high-performance OCXOs (oven-controlled crystal oscillators) as its mainstay, to base stations called central units (CUs) and distributed units (DUs).
