The lack of integrated design tools for MEMS devices in general, and for Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) devices specifically, has led to the development of tools that will enable integrated design, modeling, simulation, analysis and automatic layout generation of SAW devices. First order models of SAW delay lines in the frequency domain have been developed using the Simulink® simulator. The model implements the Impulse Response method to calculate the frequency response, the radiation conductance, the acoustic susceptance, the complex impedance, and the insertion loss for the system.
