We report on the development of a new microelectronic mechanical system MEMS-based quartz resonator technology that allows for the processing and integration of VHF to UHF high-Q oscillators and filters with high-speed silicon or III-V electronics. This paper describes the first demonstration of prototype oscillators and filters using this newly developed technology. We present impedance, Q, and temperature sensitivity data of UHF resonators along with phase noise and Allan deviation measurements. Our first 2-pole filter data showing low insertion loss are also presented. Finally, the results of power handling measurements are described for applications where high levels of background signals are present.
