Non-Filter Applications for FBAR Resonators and Devices

The first area is low power radios. FBAR enabled radios can reduce the amount of power relative to more traditional radios by eliminating the PLL and using direct modulation at high frequencies. A niche where this is most useful would be the ISM band at 2400 to 2480 MHz. Along with low power radios are the applications of extremely low noise oscillators with jitter measured in the single digit femtoseconds. Beyond radios, there are the possibility of circulators, and wake up receivers.
The second broad area is sensors. Here, the ‘jury’ is still out. As a mass sensor or, temperature sensor or, pressure sensor or particle detector, etc.. the FBAR is quite attractive. The issue is that the FBAR is very much sensitive to all environmental variables and the challenge will be to ‘tease out’ the one environmental parameter of interest and ignore all other environmental parameters. This Author has worked with many Universities over the years and has built up multiple examples of promising non-Filter technologies.
