  • How do electronic oscillators work?

     Oscillators Oscillators are very important electronic circuits without which computers, clocks, quartz watches and radios would be rendered inoperable. Oscillators produce periodic, oscillating electronic signals mostly sine waves or square waves depending on the component values. This makes them very good sources of repetitive AC. For an oscillator to produce ...
