** The crystal oscillator has the lowest power consumption, 1.5 mA, 5x lower than the "standard" Si-MEMS oscillator and 20x lower than the "low-jitter" Si-MEMS oscillator.
Among the oscillators presented in Table I [3], the Microcomputer Compensated Crystal Oscillator (MCXO) seems to be the one that best fits with the frequency stability requirements, and also with the very low consumption demand.
In this paper, we present measured data demonstrating that the resilience of the MEMS oscillators greatly exceeds that of quartz crystal oscillators during shock, vibration, and electromagnetic interference (EMI) that can occur in an automotive application.

However, good clock continuity is difficult to achieve because oscillators used on APLLs (usually LC-based) have very low holdover stability relative to DPLLs that use crystal oscillators. Typically, a DPLL has short-term holdover accuracy of 0.01 ppm (parts per million) or better, whereas an APLL has holdover accuracy above 100 ppm.
