Modern high-performance SAW filters utilize thin-film technology to optimize losses, temperate stability, filter bandwidth, and manufacturing sensitivity. Fast design of these complicated structures calls for accurate and more general simulation tools. The versatility of the finite element method (FEM) makes it attractive for this purpose. However, the application of FEM in the SAW field has been hampered by the associated very large memory requirements and excessive computation times. Here, we… CONTINUE READING
