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?
