Let me confirm about the 24MHz Crystal Oscillator requirement for i.MX7.

I try to find some requirement in datasheet and reference manual but I can't.

On the other hand, some recommendations for other i.MX series are available in community etc,.



What data we need is "center frequency" , "Tolerance", "CL", "ESR" and "Max drive level".


Could you answer me whether those recommendation ca apply for i.MX7 or not ?

Please check following question.

I found a following description in Section 4.8 XTAL Electrical Specifications of IMX53CEC


Can it apply for i.MX7 ?


2.For Tolerance

I found a folllowing description in section 2.5. Oscillator tolerance of


which tolerance value is your recommendation if user don't use above three interface ?


3. For CL & ESR:

I found following thread.

4. For Max drive level

I found following description in table 1 of
