In the design process of surface acoustic wave (SAW) device based on multistrip coupler (MSC), the characteristics of interdigital transducer (IDT) and device can not been directly achieved, and the layout structure of device can not be observed and checked. To solve some problems, the design platform of SAW device based MSC was realized in the Matlab design environment using the modular design. The design platform of SAW device based MSC consists of layout simulation module, characteristics simulation module and data output module. By means of realizing a SAW device based MSC with center frequency at 51.293MHz, the comparison and analysis between the design results and the actual test results are presented. Experiments results confirm that the platform can correctly design the device layout. The device characteristics achieved by the design platform are in good agreement with the actual measurement results by the network analyzer.
