A University of Michigan professor has developed a new type of tiny resonator using MEMS (micro-electro mechanical systems) technology. Resonators are passive components that sort radio frequencies. Traditionally, the resonator is one of the largest components in a mobile phone's circuitry. The new resonators are thousands of times smaller, and five times more selective, which can lead to phones with smaller batteries as well. Agilent Technologies recently brought a related product to market, with similar beneifts, which is already used by AirPrime and Samsung.
