  • Quartz And Piezo Memory Tools - Gain Momentum in Oil-And-Gas Market  
    • Oilfield operators who wish to get a closer look at the capabilities of these next-generation memory-gauge tools will have an opportunity from Sept. 5-8, 2017, when Quartzdyne displays the Quartz and Piezo Memory Tools in Booth 5A09 at the SPE Offshore Europe Conference & Exhibition in Aberdeen, Scotland


  • Quartzdyne Reveals New Memory Tools  Quartzdyne, Inc., a leading provider in pressure transducers for the oil and gas industry, recently introduced their new Quartz Memory Tools and Piezo Memory Tools.  Available for multiple oilfield applications, the memory tools breakthrough mechanical barriers by combining durability and accuracy for oilfield professionals. 

  • April 2017   Quartzdyne, the world’s provider of Quartz pressure transducers is taking the next step towards providing robust, reliable, industry standard products by offering a Quartz and Piezo memory gauge to the Oil and Gas industry.

  • September 2017  Quality and reliability will always be the top priority when designing and manufacturing a Quartzdyne transducer. Quartzdyne has demonstrated our commitment to quality through the extensive testing that a transducer is subjected to before leaving our facility. 

  • April 2016   We track our field reliability by recording failure modes and year shipped for each returned transducer. Each year we analyze the findings for trends and share the results openly on our webpage.

  • April 2015  For nearly a year now Quartzdyne has given extensive attention to the customer-reported problem of Hydrogen migration through Inconel bellows.

  • October 2014  We are excited to announce the introduction of the world’s smallest resonant quartz pressure transducer.  The ½” (13 mm) transducer was designed for applications that require high-accuracy, precision pressure measurements in tight spaces. 

  • April 2014  Quartzdyne has continued to innovate around making our high-temperature electronics more reliable and smaller.  We are pleased to announce our next-generation analog circuit.

  • September 2013  Precision high-temperature sensors require temperature compensation. Quartzdyne pressure transducers use a temperature-sensitive quartz crystal for compensation. In an effort to shrink transducer packaging and to increase reliability, a prototype frequency output temperature sensor was designed using a 0.8um silicon bulk CMOS process. 

  • April 2013  Our annual field reliability report is now available. In this report, we break down our field returns over the last 10 years. This report is unparalleled in the industry.  The tradition of airing our dirty laundry, as it were, has kept the pressure on us to continuously improve and has allowed us to focus our efforts on the right areas.

  • January 2011  Our ASIC oscillator and Frequency Counter chips have been very successful in our hybrid products. The oscillator ASIC has dramatically reduced field returns for DLS crystals by nearly 10X

  • May 2010   Quartzdyne engineers will be presenting two papers at this years High-Temperature Electronics Conference. The first is titled “High-Temperature CMOS Reliability and Drift”. Summary - Custom ASIC subcomponents reliability and drift testing at 225°C, 250°C, and 275°C, results are better than expected.

  • December 2009  In addition to the oscillator ASIC introduced in 2007, we’ve incorporated two additional ASICs into hybrids during 2009: a voltage regulator and a frequency counter.

  • April 2009  During May Quartzdyne will move to a new facility. The newly completed building, located five miles closer to the airport, has been designed with growth and flexibility in mind and will facilitate LEAN manufacturing initiatives we have been unable to do in our current facility.

  • October 2008  We are rapidly incorporating ASICs (application-specific integrated circuits) into our hybrids. ASIC technology allows us to reduce component count while adding new features that improve reliability and functionality.

  • April 2008  Our customers are aware that we're rapidly incorporating ASICs (application-specific integrated circuits) into our hybrids. ASIC technology allows us to reduce component count while adding new features that improve reliability and functionality.

  • October 2007  In September, Quartzdyne Electronics (QE) presented two papers at the International Conference of High-Temperature Electronics (HITEN) in Oxford, England.

  • April 2007  We track our field reliability by recording failure modes and elapsed time for each returned transducer. Every year, we analyze the database for trends and share the results openly on our webpage.
