Intro to Piezoelectric BAW Resonator Modeling
If you are using a cell phone, GPS, Bluetooth, or WiFi, chances are that they all have BAW resonators working inside them. All wireless electronic equipment use RF filters to help narrow down the frequency range they should operate within. With thousands of devices working within closely-packed radio frequencies, it is becoming increasingly important to design filters that would be able to reduce interference from unwanted frequencies, boost the signal-to-noise ratio, and lower insertion loss. Doing so may lead to fewer dropped calls in cell phones and less frequent charging of handheld electronic devices. Let’s have a look at how you can model a piezoelectric BAW resonator using simulation software.
