I wanted to add a 16mhz crystal to my circuit but I don't know where to put it in the board. I've seen other projects where the crystal is placed relatively close to the microprocessor. But since this has a been a build-as-you learn project, that special spot is already occupied. Is there any problem by placing the crystal a little bit far away? Is there any problem with the timing if the leads of the crystal are of different lengths?
Thanks for any input.
