I have LPC1342 that I want to use for a USB project.
I soldered the MCU to LQFP pinout board but then I found out that the internal oscillator is not precise enough for USB.

Here is the question, I've attached the picture of my board - can I solder the crystal on this pinout board along with capacitors, or I should design custom board where crystal sits closer to MCU?
