Coupled resonator filters designed using a single-layer coupler require coupling materials with an acoustic impedance less than 5.0 MRayl. Carbon-doped oxide, with an acoustic impedance of 4.8 MRayl and an acoustic attenuation of 200 to 600 dB/cm at 1 GHz, can be used as a single-layer coupler to produce a competitive 2-stage coupled resonator filter for(More)
Clock distribution in the multi-gigahertz range is getting increasingly difficult due to more stringent requirements for skew and jitter on one hand and the deteriorating supply voltage integrity and process variation on the other hand. Global clock network, especially in nanometer CMOS designs with ever increasing die sizes, has become a prominent(More)
