Crystal oscillator is an electronic oscillator used to create an electrical signal of precise frequency by using the vibrating crystal mechanical resonance made of piezoelectric material. In our previous articles, we explain Hartley oscillators and Colpitts oscillators in brief. Here we are going to explain crystal oscillator and its circuit diagram in brief. There are different types of piezoelectric resonators available in the market but because of a high degree of stability quartz crystal is mostly used. Quartz crystal basically operates up to frequencies ranging from a few tens of Kilohertz to hundreds of megahertz. It is used in many Read More …
