A need to make more accurate crystal measurements resulted in the development of a unique crystal test oscillator. This oscillator testmeter became the first item of our test equipment line. Saunders & Associates incorporated in 1973. In 1977 a unique circular chamber with precise temperature control was developed to allow stable crystal characterization testing over a range of temperatures. This chamber was the first in the Saunders &Associates, Inc. line of test chambers.
