I need an clearity about external crystal oscilator. I got communication between esp32 and atmega8/88/328 processor, I use atmega wih internal oscillator and looks like it have problem with serial communication (some time it lose data, or replace it with nonsences).
So i have read that should use extercal crystal oscillator to achieve stable uart communication.
Question is that, what frequency to choose, and how that gonna effect uart, and atmega processor lifetime. I know if choose 16mhz processor gonna run faster, but assume it life time will decrease compated with 1mhz or 8mhz. What about uart, which one of those frequences are best for it, or it make no difference?
