Advantages and Challenges of Third-Overtone IC Crystals

Published by Connor-Winfield

ICs with on-board oscillators requiring low frequency fundamental crystals are commonplace but now IC frequency multipliers require the higher frequencies of third overtone crystals. Compared to its fundamental implementation however the third-overtone (3OT) crystal oscillator is more complex, with different crystal characteristics plus additional reactive elements and higher gain.
