Is there something wrong when amplitude shown is approximately 1.5 V?

Latest Updated:04/05/2011

Question:

Is there any problem that the oscillation amplitude is shown as approximately 1.5 V for the XIN-XOUT oscillation circuit?

Answer:

The oscillation amplitude level of the XIN-XOUT oscillation circuit in the R8C/3x, Lx, and Mx Series is designed to be smaller than that in the R8C/1x and 2x Series to reduce current consumption.
There is no problem if the recommended oscillation circuit constant can be obtained by the matching evaluation from the oscillator manufacturer.
