Understanding the basics of the Pierce oscillator
Today, the majority of electronic circuits (including microprocessors, microcontrollers,
FPGAs, and CPLDs)are based on clocked logic, requiring a timing source. Depending on the frequency accuracy requirements, some employ oscillators while others use off-the-shelf quartz
crystals in conjunction with the built-in oscillator circuit embedded in most microcontrollers and microprocessors.
