Abstract : The purpose of the report is to provide a unified and reasonably self-contained source of theoretical techniques for ideal Surface acoustic wave (SAW) bandpass filter design and analysis. Topics discussed include an introduction to sampling theory, transducer analysis from sampling weights, cosine squared-on-a-pedestal transducers, phase reversal transducers, Dolph-Chebyshev and Kaiser weighting for sharp-cutoff filters, optimum (equiripple) filter synthesis plus Butterworth and other no-null frequency response filters. In addition, periodic time and frequency responses are discussed. Synthesis of phase weighted bandpass filters are also considered in detail, as are second order and real life effects such as inaccurate apodization, inaccurate finger placement, electrode resistance effects, and phase distortion due to the finite gap between electrodes and dummy electrodes. In all cases, full computer program descriptions, listings and test runs are provided.
