  • Crystal oscillators - an electronic oscillator that uses the mechanical resonance of a vibrating crystal to create a precise electrical frequency
  • Electric oscillators - an electrical circuit that produces a repetitive electronic signal
  • Injection-locked oscillators - or ILO, an oscillator in which the local oscillation can locked to the frequency and phase of external injection signals
  • Microwave oscillators - an electron tube or semiconductor device used for generating microwave radiation or voltage waveforms with microwave frequency
  • Ring oscillators - a device composed of an odd number of NOT gates whose output oscillates between two voltage levels, representing either "true" or "false"
  • Voltage-controlled oscillators - or VCO, an oscillator designed to be controlled in frequency by a voltage input
