I'm using a dsPIC30F4011 in my project and I want to put a 6MHz XTAL between OSC1 and OSC2 pins. The circuitry goes like this:
I want to know the values of C1 and C2 in the circuit, and I read somewhere that the formula is:
The XTAL I've bought came with this datasheet. There it says:
The thing is that the exact load capacitance is not specified, it depends on which XTAL I buy. But in the one I've bought there is no serial code or something that could tell me the specific I need. Although, in the datasheet appears an almost specific "effective series resistance" (100 Ohm max for 6MHz).
So, is there a way to get the specific load capacitance of a crystal resonator knowing its effective series resistance?
Edit (Thanks to SamGibson):
Is there a way, method or circuit to get the load capacitance of an XTAL?
