About AXTAL

Our Name AXTAL stands for Advanced XTAL Products, where "XTAL" is a common abbreviation of "crystal".
Our Company

AXTAL was establihed in 2003 as a spun-off from the previous TELE QUARZ by Bernd Neubig, a Physicist and Electronic Engineer. Its staff comprised more than 80 years of cummulated experience and expertise in the Quartz Crystal Industry.
The company is fully privately owned by Bernd and Brigitte Neubig, who are also the Managing Directors of the company. The legal name of the entity is AXTAL GmbH & Co. KG.
AXTAL's facilities are located in Southern Germany, close to Heidelberg, in the so-called "Crystal Valley" area. Wheras the administration is in the town of Lobbach, the R&D, production line and testing facilities are located in Roemerring 9 in D-74821 Mosbach.

Our Quality:
ISO9001

AXTAL assures a high level of quality and reliability of its products due to our well established Quality Management System (QMS), as documented and fixed in our Quality Management Handbook (QMH). Already in the product design phase we apply a controlled design process, with a number of verification steps and final validation in the customer application. With the process control system of our well-documented manufacturing processes, numerous in-line tests, inspections and screening including a 100% final inspection of the manufactured products, with a data base of the test results, fully traceable to the individual series number of each single item, we have a tight control of the product quality level.
A thorough incoming inspection of all purchased critical parts makes sure, that suspect components do not enter our production line.
A system of continuous improvement is established through our quality circle with members from R&D, production, and quality management.
AXTAL's quality system and processes were inspected and approved through audits of major customers from the Military and Space Industry and other industries.
Since 2008 AXTAL is certified to ISO9001:2008, in 2017 the certification was updated to ISO9001:2015 (see our actual certificate).

Our Products:

AXTAL focusses on the Design, Development, Production, Testing and Sales of Frequency Control Products and Piezo Sensors, which includes crystal resonators, crystal oscillators, and frequency control modules comprising quartz and other piezoelectric crystal resonators, such as Langasite (LGS), Langatate (LGT) as well as SAW resonators.
AXTAL's OCXO for Space applications are listed in the ESA EPPL.

Our Sales Portfolio:

AXTAL's genuine product line of crystal oscillators and frequency control modules, which are completely designed and manufactured in Germany, is supplemented by a variety of products, whe we offer from our principals.
Our line card includes (among others)

  • SICCAS - a leading manufacturer of special crystals like Langasite (LGS), Langatate (LGT), CTGS, CNGS, YCOB and many other piezoelectric crystals
  • SCTB ELPA - an experienced expert for piezoelectric sensor elements and modules
  • MagicXtal - a manufacturer of leading-edge OCXO with fast warm-up, very low power consumption and high stability
  • Kolinker Industrial Equipment - a manufacturer of Equipment for the Test and MEasurement of Quartz Crystal Units
  • SiTime - a pioneer for Silicon MEMS oscillators
Our Services: AXTAL - unlike the distributors of Frequency Control Products- is capable to do full in-house testing, screening, and qualification testing of crystals, oscillators, and filters, based on recognized IEC, MIL and ESA standards, including environmental testing like temperature shocks, vibration, mechanical shocks etc.. We offer our customers a qualified support to fix issues and to solve problems in their particular application.
Through our sister company AXTAL CONSULTING we are offering a wide range of services for failure analysis, application optimisation, testing, screening and qualification for Frequency Control Products.
