A compact model for third-order intermodulation in capacitively coupled microelectromechanical filters is derived. A simple expression for the input third-order intercept point is given. This is valuable in designing micromechanical filters, for example, for communication applications. The validity of the analytic model is verified with numerical harmonic-balance simulations and experimental measurements.
