A new low-loss, high-power SAW filter has been developed for an antenna duplexer used in an 800-MHz portable telephone transceiver. The new ladder-type configuration uses SAW resonators and capacitors between electrode fingers and the earth. It is fabricated on a 2-mm-square LiTa03 chip. This configuration provides insertion loss as low as 1.0 1.2 dB and output power up to 2 W at 800 MHz. Experimental results of a miniature antenna duplexer module using this filter as a transmitter filter and the previously published high-performance SAW filters as receiver filters are also presented. This module also includes a receiver low-noise amplifier, yet its size is under 8 ml.
