This paper describes useful design techniques for wide-band linear phase SAW filters using slanted finger interdigital transducers (SFITs): to increase stop band attenuation, to flatten the pass band response, and to draw SFIT patterns for photo-masks. In order to increase stop band attenuation, a withdrawal-weighted SFIT is employed. A combination of a withdrawal-weighted SFIT and an unweighted SFIT provides good stop band responses, even though the number of finger pairs is small. In order to achieve a desired amplitude response in the pass band, an aperture-weighting technique for divided channels of SFITs is presented. A design method for drawing SFIT patterns for photo-masks is also described. A linear-phase SAW filter using SFITs with a 50% fractional bandwidth is designed and fabricated on 128/spl deg/ y-x LiNbO/sub 3/. A sidelobe suppression of 40 dB and a 3 dB to 40 dB shape factor of 1.12 were realized. Good agreement between theoretical and experimental results is obtained.
