The application of the Electronic Industries Association suggested standard, EIA-512 , has been successfully applied to quartz crystal resonators for extraction of the equivalent circuit model parameters. This technique has been shown to be very successful in the operation range to several hundred megahertz. This same technique is proposed to be applied to many differing types of resonators through the full spectrum of frequencies. This thesis will discuss measurement and testing of Surface Acoustic Wave (Saw) resonators at the higher frequencies. The packaging configuration in conjunction with SAW devices can lead to significant parasitic effects. In order to successfully extract the SAW crystal parameters and properly predict the measured frequency response, it is important to model the resulting equivalent circuit. This circuit includes both the quartz crystal resonator and all packaging effects. The approach used has yielded good results in the tested range up to approximately 1 GHz.
