    I am trying to figure out the difference among crystals, oscillators, and resonators. I'm starting to grasp it but I still have some questions.

    From my understanding, an oscillator is built from a crystal and two capacitors. What is a resonator then? Is it a difference in terminology?
    If an oscillator and a resonator are similar, why do these two items(take them as an example):
    HWZT-16.00MD VS  FCR16.0M2G have two pins out and no ground.
    Whereas ZTT-16.00MX  has three pins one of which is a ground?

    I found these in Kynix Semiconductor ,and read the details and datasheets of them.
    Will any of these three devices work as an external clock for a microcontroller?
