Today we explore the use of oscillator synthesis software (Genesys) for practical crystal oscillator design, and the impact of the Randall-Hock correction formula on linear open loop analysis accuracy.
Today we look at how to generate a pair of quadrature signals from the output of a crystal oscillator using a pair of d-type flip-flops, as well as discussing the advantages and disadvantages of this technique.
Ever wonder what goes in to the design of a crystal oscillator? We’ll examine the operational theory of crystal oscillators, and design a discrete Pierce crystal oscillator suitable for use as a local oscillator in an HF receiver.
