    Hi all. I'm looking at a nixie clock design on instructables.com . The plans are calling for a "M16000 quartz" and have it listed in the B.O.M as 16000 Hz. I can't find one of that value anywhere. Anybody have any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    16.xxxx crystals are more common
    if you put it into a circuit that you can adj the osc freq then bringing it down to 16.000 shouldn't be a problem

    Thanks. I found that it was a typo in the BOM. Its actually supposed to be a 16 MHz crystal (which makes more sense)

    it doesn't really ...16kHz does or the 32kHz
    for 16MHz the freq would have to be divided so far down unless it's directly feeding a microprocessor

    give a link to the project


    the continued total unreliableness of stuff posted on instructables.com
    they are one of the worse sites on the net :(
