Crystal and Oscillator Components

Your Partner for Hard-to-find Crystal and Oscillator Components

An oscillator is a mechanical or electronic device that produces a periodic oscillating output, often a sine wave or a square wave.  A crystal is a passive component that also produces a periodic oscillating output but has a narrow frequency passband.  Oscillators and crystals are often used together in digital integrated circuits to provide an accurate clock source.

VRG Components can source any electronic parts that are hard to find – in short supply (allocations), end-of-life, or have long lead times – especially crystals and oscillators.  We do this by leveraging our extensive network of carefully vetted, reliable suppliers to provide you with the right components to meet your needs.

Our mission is to supply hard-to-find, high-quality electronic components to maximize our customer’s production processes.  With the ability to source components from more than 500 leading manufacturers we can secure the crystals and oscillators required for your project.

LEDs & LED Lighting

A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source that emits light when current flows through it. The current running through LEDs only moves in a single direction.

Display component on a blue circuit board


A display is any technology that allows for the visualization of an input signal. They are often paired with computers or other electronics. Most “flat panel” displays are based on liquid crystal display (LCD), light-emitting diode (LED), or organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology.
