Excerpt: A crystal oscillator is an electronic oscillator circuit that uses the mechanical resonance of a vibrating crystal of piezoelectric material to create an electrical signal with a very precise frequency. This frequency is commonly used to keep track of time (as in quartz wristwatches), to provide a stable clock signal for digital integrated circuits, and to stabilize frequencies for radio transmitters and receivers. The most common type of piezoelectric resonator used is the quartz crystal, so oscillator circuits designed around them became known as qcrystal oscillators.q Quartz crystals are manufactured for frequencies from a few tens of kilohertz to tens of megahertz. ...Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
