Filtering process is one of the highlighted issues when the operating frequency is up to medium or high GHz range in wireless transceiver system. The development of high performance, small size, filter on chip operating in GHz frequency range is the requirement of present and future wireless transceiver systems. The conventional frequency bands, below 6 GHz are already congested, thus, to satisfy this demand, the research into transceiver systems working at frequencies higher than 6 GHz has been growing. Therefore, this work proposed the design and optimization of film bulk acoustic wave resonator (FBAR) operating in frequency 7 GHz to 10 GHz with high quality (Q) factor. The effect of using different geometrical parameters to achieve high Q factor FBAR in these frequency bands is analysed. The designed FBAR achieved Q factor of 1767 at 7 GHz and 1237 at 10 GHz by using aluminium nitride as the piezoelectric thin film and molybdenum as the electrode.
