Abstract : This paper provides an overview of Bell Lab's experience in applying computers to modeling and design; to data acquisition; to data analysis; to component selection; and to other miscellaneous tasks. In the past, quartz crystal oscillators could be modeled most easily using linear circuits models. Although non-linear modes exists (e.g., SPICE, CAPITAL, etc.), they could not be used to make a closed loop analysis of crystal oscillators because of the high Q involved. Recently, however, the WATAND program developed by the University of Waterloo has become available and allows closed-loop non-linear analysis of quartz crystal oscillators. Both linear and non-linear analysis programs are being used at Bell Labs to evaluate new designs with particular attention being paid to the effect of component variations on manufacturability.
