SAW and BAW Technologies for RF Filter Applications: A Review of the Relative Strengths and Weaknesses

Dr. Robert Aigner

Triquint, Orlando, Florida, USA

Tel: +1-407-598-3039

Acoustic filter technologies based on piezoelectric materials play a key role in wireless communication as they guarantee spectral integrity of RF signals. SAW filters have been used for this purpose since the early days of mobile phones. BAW filters are a relatively recent addition to the...


SiP/SoC Integration of RF SAW/BAW Filters

Professor Ken-Ya Hashimoto

Dr. Chiba University, Chiba , Japan

Tel: 81-043-290-3318

RF filters employing surface or bulk acoustic wave (SAW/BAW0 have been mass produced and widely used in modern mobile communication equipment. Nowadays various analog functions are going to be merged into the baseband chip, and current concern is how you integrate remaining one, namely the RF...


Wireless, Passive Surface Acoustic Wave Tags and Sensors

Professor Donald C. Malocha

Dr. Univ. of Central, Florida USA

Tel: +1-407-823-2414

Surface acoustic wave (SAW) technology can provide wireless, passive RF ID tagging and sensors. There are various embodiments using frequency and time diversity, and coded spread spectrum techniques, to meet different tagging and sensor applications. New research has shown that single frequency...


Wireless SAW-Based Sensing and Identification

Prof. Dr. Leonhard Reindl

IMTEK, University of Freiberg, Germany

Tel: +49-761-203-7220

In the recent years unwired SAW sensors and identification tags have come under notice with a growing number of publications and applications. In this presentation the operating principles of wireless passive, mostly SAW-based identification marks and sensors are shown.

The whole radio-...


New Technique for Measuring Q and a Comparison of Different Resonator Technologies from MEMs to BAW

Dr. Rich Ruby

Avago Technologies, San Jose, USA

Tel: +1-408-435-6497

We present a new method of measuring unloaded Q based on S-Parameter data extracted from resonator measurements that allows one to plot the unloaded Q vs freq. for any resonator. This new way of measuring Q has several advantages as compared to older techniques. There are also several caveats...
