MEMS Oscillators Challenge Quartz Crystals in RF Applications

by Bill Schweber @ digikey.com: With very few exceptions, every electronic circuit needs an oscillator, also referred to as a clock, clock generator, or timing circuit. Its role is to provide the “heartbeat” for the processor, memory functions, communications ports, A/D and D/A converters (if any) and many other functions. In non-critical,...
