A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11967939B2) discloses a multiplexer with a unique design featuring a multi-layer raised frame structure in a bulk acoustic wave resonator. The multiplexer includes a first filter with a first passband and a second filter with a second passband, coupled at a common node. The first filter's bulk acoustic wave resonator comprises first and second electrodes, a piezoelectric layer, and a multi-layer raised frame structure with first and second raised frame layers. The raised frame structure is designed to move a raised frame mode away from the second passband, enhancing the device's performance.

Furthermore, the patent also covers a wireless communication device incorporating the multiplexer and an antenna, with the multiplexer's unique design enhancing signal processing capabilities. The multiplexer's multi-layer raised frame structure, with varying acoustic impedances in the raised frame layers, contributes to optimizing signal transmission and reception. Additionally, the patent includes a bulk acoustic wave device utilizing a similar multi-layer raised frame structure to generate bulk acoustic waves efficiently. The device's design, with distinct raised frame and recessed frame domains, showcases advancements in acoustic wave technology for various applications, including film bulk acoustic wave resonators and solidly mounted resonators. Overall, the patent highlights innovative approaches to improving wireless communication devices and bulk acoustic wave technologies for enhanced performance and functionality.
