Crystal instead of a ceramic resonator
Last Updated: September 28, 2011
Can a crystal be used instead of a ceramic resonator?
The CY7C63X0XA, CY7C6361X, and the CY7C63X1X all require a 6MHz ceramic resonator. A crystal can not be used because it has a longer start up time and will introduce uncertain behavior.
