Basics Of SAW Filters
By COM DEV
The simplest type of SAW filter consists of two interdigital transducers (IDTs) on a piezoelectric substrate. The latter is a plate of crystalline material such as quartz. The term ‘piezoelectric’ means that the material has a basic mechanism which couples electrical and mechanical fields. Consequently, an acoustic wave such as a SAW in general will have an associated electric field in such a material.
