Oscillator startup trouble - where to look?
Harold M Hallikainen email (remove spam text)
I had a lot of trouble with various resonators (16 MHz on 16c74x). Each
company said the resonator was fine if it worked in their CMOS inverter
circuit and they made no claims regarding operation with a PIC. The
exception is muRata. Go to their website, then follow the link to their
site in Japan. They have a search engine where you can put in the number
of the chip you want to use with the resonator and it'll return the
muRata part number that WILL WORK. They've actually characterized the
resonators with the various chips.
Thousands of resonators later, I've had good luck...
