I want to run an arduino out in the cold (-40), and use the serial communication - I believe that the crystal is the weakest link (the one for the serial chip) - however I don't see any drop-in (through-hole) replacement crystals that would work in such cold, so would a SMT version work instead? if so, which one would be possible to solder (package?), and do I need to change the caps to match?
P.S. - Yes, I could heat it/insulate it, but that comes at a fairly high power/complexity cost
