Crystals

Notes on crystals:

  • Crystals are high precision timekeeping devices - much better than resonators - but are more $ and may require capacitors
  • Frequencies may vary with temperature and the capacitors used
  • In general we'll have the larger/cheaper packages
  • If you need to have matching capacitors, pick ones a couple pF smaller than double the load capacitance rated. For example, a 12.5pF clock crystal would take ~20pF caps

Resonators

Notes on Resonators:

  • Resonators are reasonable-precision timekeeping devices - not as good as crystals but better than RC oscillators. Cheap & easy to use
  • Frequencies may vary with temperature and voltage used
  • Theres a couple manufacturers so we have multiple links
  • They have built in capacitors so just connect middle pin to ground and the outer two to the crystal pins of your oscillator
