Anyone have a suggestion for a known good low cost 16MHz SMT resonator to work with mega88 series at 5V? We got some Abracon SMT resonators but they only run in low power oscillator mode. There is a small motor nearby so I would prefer to use the full swing oscillator mode (or am I being paranoid?). We have been using the through hole version of Abracon resonator w/ full swing and it has been doing well. But now I am in a housing with a motor and am concerned about vibration – or again am I being paranoid? I asked the AVR help line if there is a list of known good resonators, and apparently there isn’t one – they sent me to the manufacturers. I was hoping to find some suggestions that have some experience behind them. I really don’t want to have thousands of these controls come back in a few years because the resonator fell off. There was a suggestion of mounting the through hole version bent over and gluing it down.
Thanks in advance,
GSkinner

low power???
Use Murata never have probleme.
full sving == more EMC problem...
Vibration --> well not long enough experience but 100 board are assembly in the norweigian police car.
No retur yes. (one year now).
But use a 8MHz with inside capacitor.
