Start with an AC14 ST, followed by a divide by 5. I used part of a HC390 but a LS 90 will do. Take the 2 MHz output feed the input of the 570 and select 16X out comes 32 and 16 MHz. Material cost less than $ 5 regulator included.

The big advantage of the ICS570 vs 99% of the other solutions
is that it does not require a microcontroller to baby sit it.
For a quick and easy solution, that aspect trumps everything
else.

At least for me. I took 1 course in Fortran 50 years ago,
and that was the extent of my software education.
During my whole career, I have too busy being well
paid to design hardware, to have any time left over to
learn software.  After Fortran was over, there was the Pascal
fad, then the C fad, etc, now I guess Python is the latest.
Never got involved in any of that.
