Ⅰ Crystal Oscillator Circuit Diagram (1)

As shown in the figure, it is a simple crystal oscillator circuit composed of three gates of A1, four resistors, tuning capacitors and a crystal. In the figure, A1 and the crystal resonator SJT and the capacitor constitute a square wave signal of 4069 kHz. Set the switch to 1 point and send it to A2. After A2 is divided by two, the 2048kHz oscillation signal is obtained. The switch is placed at 3 points and sent to A3. After A2 is divided by two, the 128kHz oscillation signal is obtained. Tuning capacitors C1 and C2 allow the frequency to be accurately tuned to the center frequency. The crystal SJT is connected between the input and output terminals of A1 to provide a feedback loop at the fundamental frequency of the crystal.

Ⅱ Crystal Oscillator Circuit Diagram (2)

The pole tube TV2 performs signal amplification and is coupled out through the capacitor C8. Among them, the resistors RI, R2 and the resistors R5, R6, and R7 are DC biasing elements of the transistors VT1 and VT2. L2 is a high-frequency choke coil that provides a DC path to the collector current of the oscillating tube VT1. C2 is a DC blocking capacitor. C3 and C7 are AC bypass capacitors so that the emitter of VT1 is at AC zero potential, but the DC potential is not zero. Inductor L1, capacitor C6, and resistor R3 are improved power supply filter circuits, which function to reduce the ripple voltage to oscillate the DC component. The capacitors C4 and C8 can be slightly adjusted to change the size of the coupled signal.

2.1 Component Selection

Capacitor C1 is 20p, C2 is 100p, C3 and C7 are 820p, C4 is 56p, C5 and C8 are 47p, and C6 is 47u/50V. The inductance L1 is 22 uH (color code inductance), and L2 is 0.3 uH. Resistor R1 is 1.6kΩ, R2 is 1kΩ, R3 is 750Ω, R4 is 180Ω, 1W, R5 is 1.3kΩ, R6 is 3kΩ, R7 is 360Ω, R8 is 470Ω, and R9-R12 is 300Ω, 2W. Transistor VT1, VT2 select 3DG82B, 65 ≤ β ≤ 115. The crystal SJT uses JA9B type -70MHz. The relay KM is JUC-1M.

2.2 Notice

(1) When applying quartz crystals, there is a practical problem that must be noted. This is the excitation power of the crystal itself. When the excitation power is large, the output power is also large. At this time, the noise introduced by the transistor is not greatly affected. However, excessive crystal excitation power deteriorates the long-term stability (aging characteristics) of the crystal. When the crystal excitation power is small, the long-term stability is good, but it is preferable to use a low-noise crystal triode.

(2) Since the crystal frequency is greatly affected by temperature, in order to ensure the stability of the crystal frequency, it is necessary to pay attention to the crystal constant temperature. The crystal is placed in a constant temperature bath, and the temperature in the constant temperature bath is maintained by the constant temperature control circuit to maintain the inflection point temperature of the crystal.

Therefore, in order to stabilize the oscillation frequency and the oscillation amplitude, the crystals SJT and VT1, VT2 are placed in the incubator. The incubator is heated by R9-R12 four 2W metal film resistors, and a small sealed temperature relay KM is used as a temperature control element. The temperature inside the box is +55 ° C (the inflection point temperature of the crystal used is generally +60 ± 5 ° C). In order to reduce the volume of the incubator, the components in the circuit should be as small as possible. If the temperature inside the box is higher than +55 °C, the KM-1.2 contact is disconnected; if ≤ +55 °C, the KM-1.2 contact is closed to ensure that the temperature inside the box is set at +55 °C.


Ⅲ Crystal Oscillator Circuit Diagram (3)

The circuit oscillates in the frequency range from 100kHz to 5MHz. The operating characteristics are determined by the source resistance. The frequency can be adjusted using a trimmer capacitor. The output resistance is high, followed by a source follower as an isolator to support this shortcoming.


Ⅳ Crystal Oscillator Circuit Diagram (4)

This simple and inexpensive crystal oscillator consists of two gates and peripheral components of the 74LS04. The circuit is shown in Figure 3:

Crystal Oscillator Circuit Diagram (4)

Resistors R1 and R2 bias the two inverters F1, F2 in a linear range and provide a feedback loop from the crystal SJT, which produces a 20MHz oscillation frequency at the fundamental frequency of the crystal, which is then sent by inverter F3 to 74LS74. The constructed D-type flip-flop is divided.

To perform two-way or four-way, eight-way, etc., you need to follow the 2n frequency division rule (n is the number of stages). n=1, then 21=2 frequency division, that is, 20MHz after A1=frequency dividing circuit, Q1 output 10MHz; if four frequency division, n=2, then 22=4 frequency division, that is, 20MHz is divided by A1 and A2 After the circuit, Q2 outputs 5MHz; if the frequency is divided by three when the third pulse off is over, Q1=1, Q2=1, then Q1=0, Q2=0, or the output of the non-gate HF1 is 1, to The R terminal resets, and Q1 and Q2 are reset to 00. After the A1 and A2 are divided by three, the Q2 output is about 6.7MHz. If the frequency is divided by five, when the count is 5, Q1Q2Q3=101, that is, Q1=0. Q3=0, the output of the NOR gate HF2 is 1, and Q1, Q2, and Q3 are reset to 000. As a result, Q3 outputs a 4MHz frequency.

It is clear that the output state is determined by D, and the flipping of the output state is controlled by the CP, which can generate a variety of frequencies suitable for their needs.

Quartz crystals are manufactured for frequencies from a few tens of kilohertz to hundreds of megahertz.

 

3. What is the working of a crystal oscillator?

Crystal oscillators operate on the principle of the inverse piezoelectric effect in which an alternating voltage applied across the crystal surfaces causes it to vibrate at its natural frequency. It is these vibrations that eventually get converted into oscillations.

Bring the measurement probes of the multimeter into contact with the metallic legs of the crystal oscillator. One probe should touch each leg. The multimeter should now read a frequency that corresponds to the one written on the crystal oscillator casing.

 

5. What is the difference between crystal and oscillator?

An oscillator is any device or circuit that generates a periodically oscillating electric signal (usually a sine wave or a square wave). ... A crystal is a piece of piezoelectric material that generates an oscillating sinusoidal electric signal due to the mechanical vibration of its structure.

 

6. What are the advantages of a crystal oscillator?

Load capacitance is the amount of external circuit capacitance in parallel with the crystal itself. In this example, we see that the crystal's parallel-resonance mode is always above the series resonance frequency and is characterized by inductive reactance.

 

10. Can MEMS oscillators replace crystal oscillators?

While MEMS oscillators have yet to fully invade the market space for temperature-compensated crystal oscillators (TCXOs) and oven-controlled crystal oscillators (OCXOs), they are fully capable of replacing other crystal oscillator types commonly at a lower cost.
