### Piezoelectric wafers for SAW applications

Current technologies are developing in leaps and bounds, miniaturization of complex technical products doesn't stop even for a moment. At the end of the 20th century the mobile phone wasthe size of abackpack, that was due to bulkycomponents of signal detection andtransmission. However, thanks to the development of technologies for the production of surface acoustic wave acousto-electric devices, we can keep almost a full-fledged PC in our pockets. Fomos-Materialsoffers piezoelectric wafers made of Langasite, Lithium Tantalate, Lithium Niobate and Catangasite crystals to manufacturers of SAWdevices. Wafers as with standard cuts as under the agreed specification are presented to your attention.
