The use of MEMS-based resonators for frequency filtering has been promising for achieving single- chip superheterodyne transceivers. For use in communications, filters having large out-of-band rejections and sharp rolloffs are required which necessitates their high-order implementation, yet filters having more than 3 resonators have not been achieved due to their high susceptibility of passband distorting effects. This project aims to realize higher order micromechanical filters to achieve better selectivity and stopband rejection at UHF range.
