This work presents a methodology for designing microwave acoustic filters, based on two-port bulk acoustic wave resonators (also known as stacked crystal filters), with either Butterworth or Chebyshev response. The presented methodology makes it possible to design this type of filter without any optimization work, and, moreover, for its closed-form expressions design can be obtained. As a validation example, we address the design of a pair of filters for UMTS cellular phone handsets. The different simulations carried out show the good agreement between the transmission response of the designed filters and the theoretical response. © 2009 Cambridge University Press and the European Microwave Association.
