A consistent methodology to characterize BAW resonators



Eduard Rocas, Carlos Collado, Robert Aigner, Jordi Mateu, A Hueltes, James Booth


We present a methodology to characterize BAW resonators both linearly and nonlinearly. The procedure uses physical modeling along with measurements that exploit different manifestations of the nonlinear phenomena to identify the dominant linear and nonlinear material properties. Such methodology allows obtaining consistent nonlinear material parameters by use of two independents measurements.
