Abstract

A basic problem in crystal controlled oscillators is the crystal mount itself. The crystal blank must be mechanically supported and electrically connected to the circuit without the mount having any affect on it. Unfortunately, it does. A method is described where the oscillator board is also a crystal resonator, thus the entire crystal mount and its associated problems are eliminated.
