Using the stacked crystal filter (SCF) concept, a coupled resonator filter (CRF) can be interpreted as a device in which 2 piezoresonators are stacked on top of each other in such a way that a certain degree of acoustic interaction occurs. The work presented in this paper reports a novel all-electrical model for the CRF. The model associates acoustical coupling with an equivalent electrical coupling between resonators. The resulting equivalent circuit makes it possible to apply classical filter synthesis techniques directly based on the coupling control between resonators. It complements with a synthesis approach the analysis approach of the Mason model. © 2008 IEEE.
