Title: Non-inverting multi-mode oscillator

Abstract

Various technologies described herein pertain to non-inverting multi-mode oscillators. An oscillator circuit can include a non-inverting sustaining amplifier and a feedback network. The non-inverting sustaining amplifier includes an amplifier input and an amplifier output. The feedback network includes a crystal, an input portion, and an output portion. The crystal of the feedback network can be connected between the amplifier input and the amplifier output of the non-inverting sustaining amplifier. The input portion of the feedback network can be connected between the amplifier input and ground, and can include an inductor realized using a tank circuit. Further, the output portion of the feedback network can be connected between the amplifier output and ground, and can include a capacitor. Moreover, the crystal can operate in series resonance mode or parallel resonance mode.
