  • Patent number: 10727804
    Abstract: An integrated circuit is a layered device, on a semiconductor substrate, which contains metal electrodes that sandwich a piezoelectric layer, followed by a magnetostrictive layer and a metal coil. The metal electrodes define an electrical port across which to receive an alternating current (AC) voltage, which is applied across the piezoelectric layer to cause a time-varying strain in the piezoelectric layer. The magnetostrictive layer is to translate the time-varying strain, received by way of a vibration mode from interaction with the piezoelectric layer, into a time-varying electromagnetic field. The metal coil, disposed on the magnetostrictive layer, includes a magnetic port at which to induce a current based on exposure to the time-varying electromagnetic field generated by the magnetostrictive layer.

  • Publication number: 20190131953
    Abstract: A piezoelectric thin-film suspended above a carrier substrate. An input interdigital transducer (IDT) having first interdigitated electrodes is disposed at different locations along the horizontal axis and on the first side of the piezoelectric thin-film. Each opposing pair of the first interdigitated electrodes is to selectively transduce a particular frequency range of an input electrical signal that varies in frequency over time into an acoustic wave of a laterally vibrating mode based on a pitch between electrodes of the opposing pair. An output IDT that includes second interdigitated electrodes is disposed at different locations along the horizontal axis and on the second side of the piezoelectric thin-film. Each opposing pair of the second interdigitated electrodes is to convert the acoustic wave transduced by the respective opposing pair of the first interdigitated electrodes into a compressed pulse.
