This book introduces the basic definitions of the sensors, the biosensors and their features, and the equivalent components, amplifiers, filters, and bio-measurement systems for further circuit design. It describes and categorizes the mainstream acoustic wave biosensors, including the utilization of the bulk acoustic waves and analysis devices, which imply surface acoustic waves. In addition, the use of the piezoelectric substrates of the acoustic sensors design is included. The different types of the biosensors are presented. Several applications of the acoustic biosensors are introduced.
