16F84A-P DIP RC Oscillator




This is a plot of RC frequencies at 5V, 20C. Values above 1M ohms follow the curve. They may be unreliable unless the RC area around the PIC is shielded. The capacitor value can be increased to larger values for slower clocks. Current for a non-SLEEPing PIC is a maximum of 3.5mA, but does not go below 540uA at any lower frequency
