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.

Customer Comments

  • Does anybody know how to implement these two-legged crystals in practical applications? I am coming up dry on any information on this. I have an IC that needs a clock, and I have this crystal. How do I get it to oscillate? My IC has one clock input terminal.

  • Can i use higher capacitance value than 20pF? I.e. 22pF as shown under “Related products”?

    • 2pf is within the tolerance of the parts anyway. A 20pf could easily be a 22pf in fact. If this were a recipe it would call for a “smidgen of capacitance”. Either way would work.
