I am about to use a 8MHz quartz resonator that has 4 pins (http://datasheet.octopart.com/LF-XTAL026380.-IQD-Frequency-Products-datasheet-6993.pdf): pin 1 and 3 are connected to resonator while pins 2 ...
Atmel's AVR186 document shows in page 2 a layout of two capacitors very close to each other and pointing in the same direction, also in page 3 they say: "The load capacitors should be placed close to ...
I am laying out a (2-layer) board, with a standard SMD Crystal as well as a Real-time clock placed on the top-side of the board. What are guidelines regarding ground copper pour under the Crystal and ...
Pictures shown below is a typical 32.768kHz crystal, commonly use in Real Time Clock circuit (e.g: DS1307 & DS1337) Referring to an earlier question posted here, it is a good practice that ...
I've done a preliminary layout of my crystals. I've never designed a board with crystals so this is just a rough first pass based on my small set of working knowledge of crystal layout. How am I ...
This is related to this question: How's my crystal oscillator layout? I'm trying to layout a 12MHz crystal for a micro controller. I've been reading through several recommendations specifically for ...
I'm routing a breakout board for NXP's LPC23xx microcontroller. This MCU requires two crystals if one is using the RTC. These two crystals connect to the MCU with only 3 pins in between: From this ...
I wanted know what should be the optimum distance between a microntroller(AT89C51ED2) and a crystal of frequency 11.0592MHz?
