In this paper, we present a simple method for the design of temperature-stable oscillators using silicon resonators. This technique is based on generation of two different frequencies f1 and f2 with the same temperature dependence. It is now possible to obtain a third signal from mixing of the two reference frequencies which, through proper selection of resonator parameters, does not change with temperature. The design process is quite simple as it relies on the inherent differences in material properties of crystalline silicon.
