hi,

I just found out a 2.5*2mm 16MHz crystal with 8pF load capacitance.

and then I realized that maybe if i use this crystal to my UC3B, then it does not need external capacitors anymore, because UC3B got equivalent internal load capacitance of 6pF and if i count 2pF PCB stray capacitance, then that's 8pF.

i know that smaller load capacitance means more sensitive to environment change, but anyone already done this to save valuable 2 paralell 0402 capacitor spaces besides your QFN64 package?

I got reply from ATMEL that I can skip external capacitors, and the crystal can be started by internal ones.
