Every Wednesday we highlight a component from the updated Dangerous Prototypes partlist. This week: clock sources. As always, there are footprints for all these parts and more in our public domain Cadsoft Eagle part library. In our workshop the first … Read more
Crystal oscillators generate pretty accurate frequencies, but the output varies a bit depending on the operating temperature. The crystal oven heats a crystal to a constant temperature to get the most accurate and consistent frequency possible. Via Hack a Day.
