Abstract--This paper reports on the design of a 2-pole differential
MEMS filter using mechanically-coupled overtone width-
extensional resonators. The resonators and filters are fabricated
in the 10 m thick device layer of a SOI wafer and transduced by
a 0.5 m PZT (lead zirconate titanate) thin film deposited on the
top surface of the wafer. A 206.3 MHz overtone width-extensional
filter is demonstrated with 653 kHz bandwidth, -25 dB insertion
loss (IL) and -62 dB stop-band rejection in air. Uncompensated
temperature coefficient of frequency (TCF) of -16 ppm/C and
third-order input intercept point (IIP3) of +52.5 dBm are
