The Quartz Chipset is a component added by BuildCraft. While not usable itself, it is a basic component of the Quartz AND and Quartz OR Gate and a fundamental component of Clock Timer Gates, and thus many BuildCraft automation techniques (see Usage).
Quartz Chipsets can be combined in the Integration Table with any AND and OR Gate to upgrade that Gate into its Clock Timer version. For example a Quartz Chipset and an Iron AND Gate, thus, will become an Clock Timer Iron AND Gate. This process always consumes 25,000 RF.
