  • Patent number: 10659007
    Abstract: A tunable filter includes a series-arm resonant circuit, and a parallel-arm resonant circuit. The series-arm resonant circuit includes a group of acoustic wave resonant circuits that have different resonant frequencies, a variable capacitor, and switching circuits. The parallel-arm resonant circuit includes another group of acoustic wave resonant circuits that have different resonant frequencies, a variable capacitor, and switching circuits. For example, the difference in pass-band frequency caused by the difference in resonant frequency between the acoustic wave resonant circuit in the group and the acoustic wave resonant circuit in the other group is greater than the maximum difference in pass-band frequency resulting from the variable range of capacitance of the variable capacitor.
