The achievements of modern microacoustics such as surface acoustic wave (SAW) and bulk acoustic wave (BAW) technologies are presented in different electronic equipment. The authors are analyzing these technologies in the world market and tendencies in their development. The questions of miniaturization and housing using different technologies are considered. Merits and demerits of SAW and PAW in microwave communication are marked. The authors also present the technology achievements of quartz BAW-resonators and generators in the frequency band up to 20 MHz. Influence of the latest technologies such as microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) on different electronic equipment and possible use of MEMS -components instead of widely used components on SAW and BAW is shown.
