SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) and BAW (Bulk Acoustic Wave) technologies are widely used in a variety of applications, including filters, oscillators, transformers, and delay lines. SAW and BAW delay lines in particular offer several advantages over other signal wave technologies and are used in a variety of applications, from Electronic Warfare (EW) target generation to communications systems for television and video. While they are used in somewhat similar applications, SAW and BAW technologies are each unique and have distinctive characteristics. Factors such as required signal delay, frequency, footprint, and cost all must be considered when choosing the best delay line solution for a project.
