Pierce-gate oscillator crystal load calculation

Posted on Jul 12, 2012

The crystal used in the topology of Figure 1 can be either a fundamental AT-CUT or BT-CUT. A BT-CUT crystal has poor frequency stability over temperature compared to an AT-CUT. This topology uses a parallel crystal and not a series crystal.
