I just got some 25.6kHz crystals from www.digikey.com I want to get 100Hz
from the O7 output of a 4060 14 stage ripple-carry counter/divider and
oscillator. I am trying to use the Pierce oscillator( I wish I knew more
about the Pierce oscillator than I do which is close to zip) that is drawn
in the Philips datasheet at:
From here one can download the datasheet. It downloads in seconds.
In spite of my best efforts I cannot coax the oscillator to oscillate at
25.6kHz. Instead it oscillates at around 422kHz. I have tried varying Rbias
and C3 over the recommended ranges but to no avail.
The datasheet for the crystal(C-2 type) is at:
I think this is a useful circuit to have in ones armoury.
Any ideas about how to get the circuit to oscillate at 25.6kHz.

Ps. I choose FedEx economy for shipping but Digi-Key charged me for FedEx
Priority at $67.19. From that point on "Words were passed" (from the song
"My Home Town" on the album "Born in the USA" by Brice Springsteen) and
eventually I got the cost down to around $40 with a warning to anticipate
high shipping charges in the future. The 10 crystals cost a mere 10$. By the
way Digi-Key seem to keep a good stock of these crystals.
