    Custom Teensy 3.6 Crystal

    I ran into an interesting observation and I'm looking for some insight. I typically use this crystal for my Teensy 3.6 based custom projects:
    https://www.digikey.com/products/en?...=644-1099-6-nd

    But for my latest project, I used this one:
    https://www.digikey.com/products/en?...=644-1129-1-nd

    I switched in order to obtain a wider temperature range; however, I noticed that my board did not work with the NX3225SA-16.000M-STD-CRS-2. I switched the crystal to the NX3225SA-16.000000MHZ-B3 and the board works great. The load capacitance is similar (7.2 pF and 8 pF), which is why I thought that it would work fine. However, I'm just now noticing that the ESR is significantly higher on the NX3225SA-16.000M-STD-CRS-2 than the NX3225SA-16.000000MHZ-B3 (120 Ohm vs 80 Ohm) and am wondering if that's potentially causing the issues or if there's something else I missed.

    You may have better luck with this question in an electronics design news group (ie. usenet). Sci.electronics.design, also available through Google groups is one such possibility.

    Yes, the series resistance can cause a slow start-up or "sleepy crystal". I found this article helpful, https://www.electronicdesign.com/ana...illator-design

    Thanks! That's an interesting reference.
