Quartz crystal companies in Taiwan have cooperated to form an organization named Quartz Ind. Association in Taiwan (QIAT). Paul Lin, the chairman of TXC Corp. was elected president of the association.

Lin says the purpose of the QIAT is to organize quartz and crystal manufacturing companies in Taiwan to develop, design and produce technologies for making quartz crystals, oscillators, TCXOs, and saw filters. In addition, QIAT aims to seek joint venture agreements with foreign companies to upgrade production capabilities.

Recently, QIAT hosted seminars on 3G wireless telecommunications and on AIN, ZnO, and PZT thin-films for used in film bulk acoustic resonator (FBAR) devices. The key speakers were Dr. Jun Yamada from Hitachi and Dr. Sakichi Ashida from LG Innotek. Sakichi is a specialist on materials, process and epitaxy growth for SAW filters. He introduced the steps on the filter applications. Next-generation development trends for 4G systems were also introduced at the seminar.
