The testing of MEMS resonators helps not only in verifying if the design specifications have been met but also in further optimization of the design, if necessary. In this chapter we have seen various methods to test MEMS resonator filters. As the frequency of operation of the resonators further increases, we may have to come up with specific calibration mechanisms to remove the parasitic effects.
