Oscillators generate the heartbeat of every microcontroller and produce clock signals that are essential for synchronizing internal operations. In microcontrollers, the clock signals can be generated using either mechanical resonant devices or electrical phase shift circuits.
Mechanical resonant devices include crystals and ceramic resonators. Mechanical resonator-based oscillators are well-known for their accuracy. As they offer a low-temperature co-efficient, they are suitable for applications where precise timing over a wide temperature range is required.
