Piezoelectric SAW and BAW resonators are the de facto elements in electronic devices for frequency control. These piezoelectric resonators are complex three-dimensional structures that are required to maintain a constant frequency under various environmental conditions such as temperature, pressure, shock and vibrations. Ideally the resonators are high Q, low noise and voltage drive level independent.
Lately due to miniaturization of the piezoelectric resonators, higher bandwidths and tighter tolerances for frequency control in telecommunications, the nonlinear effects in these resonators have become an important subject matter for research. Their nonlinear analyses have now become required elements for new and better designs. In this seminar I present and discuss the nonlinear frequency response and time domain response of piezoelectric SAW & BAW resonators. I wil present the use of nonlinear time domain studies to validate our nonlinear frequency response models. Derivations of the coupled nonlinear f – 2f – 3f frequency response governing equations and the special numerical techniques will be presented. Results on the nonlinear time domain-FFT study of the f – 2f response of Lithium Niobate YX-127o SAW resonator versus its nonlinear frequency response are shown. The nonlinear f – 3f frequency response of quartz resonators are presented and compared with experimental results on their amplitude-frequency effects. Good comparisons were found.
