Oscillators and Crystals An oscillator is a mechanical or electronic device that produces a periodic oscillating output, often a sine wave or a square wave. A crystal is a passive component that also produces a periodic oscillating output but has a narrow frequency passband. Oscillators and crystals are often used together in digital integrated circuits to provide an accurate clock source. Although crystal frequencies can be in the high kilohertz to low megahertz, a phase-locked loop (PLL) can accurately multiply the input frequency into the high MHz and low GHz ranges which are useful in clocking high-speed circuitry.
