SMR Under High Power Study For Reliability
N. Ben Hassine1, 2, 3, P. Mercier4, Ph. Renaux3

This work deals with BAW SMR reliability at high power levels. Experimental methods easy to set up in common RF laboratories are presented and validated. Experimental results concerning frequency shifts versus the dissipated power and the harmonics generation are reported. The main origins of these effects are discussed physically and conclusions in light of the obtained results about the characterization method and the device reliability are drawn.
