I've built a number of AVR projects, but I've always used either the internal or an external oscillator. I'm starting a project now that I'd like to use an external crystal with and Digikey lets me filter on load capacitance and ESR. I've found the Atmel recommendations for the capacitors to use with external crystals, but nothing on load capacitance or ESR. Can anyone point me to some info on this? Thanks.
