[mi′kan·ə·kəl ′fil·tər]
(electronics)
Filter, used in intermediate-frequency amplifiers of highly selective superheterodyne receivers, consisting of shaped metal bars, rods, or disks that act as coupled mechanical resonators when used with piezoelectric or magnetostrictive input and output transducers and coupled by small-diameter wires. Also known as mechanical wave filter.
