App note: MSP430 32-kHz crystal oscillators

App note: MSP430 32-kHz crystal oscillators

MSP430 32-kHz crystal oscillators (PDF!) application note from Texas Instruments:


Selection of the right crystal, correct load circuit, and proper board layout are important for a stable crystal oscillator. This application report summarizes crystal oscillator function and explains the parameters to select the correct crystal for MSP430
ultralow-power operation. In addition, hints and examples for correct board layout are given. The document also contains detailed information on the possible oscillator tests to ensure stable oscillator operation in mass production.
