Crystal Kit Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

3 Soldering

Skill Level: Competent - You will encounter surface mount components and basic SMD soldering techniques are required.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

3 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

    When will this be back in stock?

    Why 22pF caps? With 20pF rated crystals, the cap should be closer to 39pF each, depending on the parasitic C on the particular board.

    22pF "works", for certain values of "work".

    • I dunno, most people use 22pf caps with all crystals for some reason. Adafruit has a good article on choosing the right capacitors to use with a crystal:
