A resonator is a device which can be made to oscillate by receiving oscillations from another system. A device designed to oscillate near it's own frequency.
A resonator may be quartz or ceramic.

The ceramic resonator is a low cost frequency control solution when absolute frequency accuracy is not important.

Ceramic resonators implement the mechanical resonance of piezoelectric ceramics. Ceramic Resonator design utilizes this ceramic substrate by applying two metal electrodes evenly placed on both the top and bottom of the substrate. When voltage is applied, vibration of the ceramic substrate occurs between the electrodes.

Ceramic Resonators inherently reduce the precision for which frequencies can be controlled as compared to Quartz Crystals. When using package size versus cost as the basis for comparison, Ceramic Resonators are approximately 25 - 50% less expensive to produce in the surface mount package category, and approximately 50 - 75% less expensive to produce in the though hole package category as compared to Quartz Crystal products.
