Shock and Vibration Comparison of MEMS and Quartz-based Oscillators

All electronic products are subject to shock and vibration during their lifetime. Forces can range from motion experienced by mobile consumer products carried around in pockets or backpacks to high vibration levels for industrial equipment or aerospace applications. Even stationary products in buildings may experience vibration from a nearby fan or other equipment. It is therefore important to consider how electronic components perform in the presence of shock and vibration. Table 1 shows typical levels of acceleration in various environments.
