colpitts crystal oscillator circuit


Posted on Feb 7, 2014

This is a design schematic of a Crystal Colpitts oscillator can be implemented using a transistor and a parallel mode crystal. This is the figure of the circuit. In this circuit, the crystal is use as an inductance. A large value capacitive divider is used between gate, source, and ground, and a small series capacitor is placed in the crystal circ

uit. You should choose the components values so that C2+C3 to C1 ratio has the highest possible value. The ratio of 5 to 10 to 1 is usually used. The schematic shows the typical values. This circuit introduce is a little loading on the crystal. The relatively high value is of C2 and C3 swamp out  variations and drift caused by variations in device characteristics. Frequency can be fine tuned with C1. A clean enough sine wave appears at the emitter of the transistor.
