Please refer to Renesas Electronics official site for additional information.

In realizing low power consumption RF designs, the following factors should be taken into consideration.

  1. Oscillation start-up time
  2. Frequency tuning
  3. Lower BER(Bit Error Rate) over operating temperature
No. Oscillation Circuit Factor 2.4 GHz
< AT crystal unit spec.>
1 Quick oscillation start-up time
*High oscillation allowance
*Boost inverter
*Lower ESR(R1)
*High drive level
2 Easy frequency control
*inner frequency tuning capacitor
*proper frequency sensitivity
*low parameters' variation
3 Lower BER
*temperature compensation
*High frequency stability

Notes: Above recommendations are based on actual evaluation results and intended to support
users in picking the right components. And the results are only according to the sample
set that received from our customers, so it is not including the dispersion trend of IC
and the external parts.
As the actual board layout and choice of external components influences the best suitable
crystal load capacitance, We do not assume any responsibility and grant warranty for
above recommendations.
Users design must be verified and decided by own and individual evaluation.
