No.2 "The Measurement process for the oscillation margin" - IC and crystal units characterization -
What is the Oscillation margin? Oscillation margin provides the limit at which oscillation stops. This is one of the most important parameters for the oscillation circuit. We would like to explain the measurement process to acquire the oscillation margin.
