## Why the LSE oscillator should have a frequency of 32.768 kHz?

Generally, it is taken that the faster something oscillates, the more accurate it is. It’s mostly because 32.768kHz crystals are ‘cheap as chips’ – they are used in nearly every watch, clock and toy ever made. Economies of scale dictate that they will always be cheap – a few pence in most cases.

**How does a Pierce oscillator work?**

Pierce Crystal Oscillator In this simple circuit, the crystal determines the frequency of oscillations and operates at its series resonant frequency, ƒs giving a low impedance path between the output and the input. There is a 180o phase shift at resonance, making the feedback positive.

### How is ESR crystal measured?

Equivalent Series Resistance ESR must not be confused with motional resistance (RM) of the crystal equivalent circuit. ESR is related to RM by the following equation: ESR = RM *(1+C0/CL)2 ESR is typically specified as a maximum resistance value in ohms.

**What is LSE crystal?**

LSE is a low-speed 32.768 kHz quartz crystal external clock.

#### How does Armstrong oscillator work?

The Armstrong oscillator uses an LC parallel-tuned circuit to establish the frequency of oscillation, with feedback being provided by a separate tickler coil of proper polarity to sustain oscillation.

**What is drive level of crystal?**

Crystal drive level is the amount of power dissipated in a crystal which is usually specified in microwatts or milliwatts. It can be calculated by measuring the excitation current flowing through the crystal.

## What is LSE clock?

The RTC and LCD clock is generated by the low-speed external 32.768 kHz oscillator (LSE), the low-speed internal 32 kHz RC oscillator (LSI), or the HSE divided by 32. The LSE can remain enabled in all low-power modes and in VBAT mode. The LSI can remain enabled in all modes except Shutdown and VBAT modes. 9.

**Can we store 32768 value?**

No. “int” data type is capable of storing values from -32768 to 32767. To store 32768, you can use “long int” instead. You can also use “unsigned int”, assuming you don’t intend to store negative values.

### What is the prime factor of 32768?

To solve our problem, the first step would be to prime factorize our number which is equal to 32768. Thus, we get the final resulting number as 32. Hence, the cubic root of 32768 by the method of prime factorization comes out to be 32 .

**Which of the following is an advantage of an Armstrong oscillator?**

The main advantage is that, the construction of Armstrong-type tube oscillators using a tuning capacitor where one side is earthed. It produces a stable frequency and stably amplified output waveform.

#### How does Hartley oscillator work?

Hartley Oscillator is a device that generates oscillatory output (sinusoidal). It consists of an amplifier linked to an oscillatory circuit, also called LC circuit or tank circuit. The function of tank circuit is to tune a certain frequency. LC oscillators are designed to operate in the radio-frequency range.

**Why capacitor is connected in oscillator?**

Capacitors C1 & C2 are usually chosen so that oscillator frequency is very close to the crystal manufacturer’s target frequency, since frequency is often of prime importance to the circuits that this oscillator drives.
