This paper presents recent measurements and
modeling of the third order intermodulation products of a Film
Bulk Acoustic Resonator (FBAR), for a various values of
frequency spacing between driving tones. The frequency
dependence of voltage and current in the acoustic branch rules
out a voltage-dependent nonlinearity. The results show different
slopes at resonance and antiresonance, which are correctly
adjusted by the model with a current dependent inductor and/or
capacitor. The intermodulation distortion is found to be
dependent on the frequency spacing between driving tones,
indicating memory effects.
