Paper Abstract

Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) oscillators are practical from 100 MHz to 1500 MHz and can be in the form of a delay line or resonator. High overtone hulk acoustic resonators on non-piezoelectric substrates operate from 1 GHz to 10 GHz with a 0 better than quartz. The two SAW approaches and the high overtone hulk resonator are compared with each other and with a multiplied 5 MHz standard crystal oscillator for UHF and microwave applications. UHF acoustic oscillators give size, weight, cost and power reductions.
