This paper reports on the design, fabrication, and characterization of piezoelectrically-transduced micromechanical single-crystal-silicon resonators operating in their lateral bulk acoustic modes to address the need for high-Q microelectronic-integrable frequency-selective components. A simple electromechanical model for optimizing performance is presented. For verification, resonators were fabricated on 5-mum-thick silicon-on- insulator substrates and use a 0.3-mum zinc oxide film for transduction. A bulk acoustic mode was observed from a 240 mum times 40 mum resonator with a 600-Omega impedance (Q=3400 at P=1 atm) at 90 MHz. A linear resonator absorbed power of -0.5 dBm and an output current of 1.3 mA rms were measured. The same device also exhibited a Q of 12 000 in its fundamental extensional mode at a pressure of 5 torr.
