A spread-spectrum radio, such as a frequency-hopping spread-spectrum radio or a direct-sequence spread-spectrum radio, includes a transmitter that utilizes microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) based oscillation system to generate a spread-spectrum signal and/or a receiver that utilizes a MEMS-based frequency selection system to receive a spread-spectrum signal. In an embodiment, the MEMS-based oscillation system and the MEMS-based frequency selection system utilize MEMS resonators such as thin film bulk acoustic resonators (FBARs) that are fabricated in high density on a single substrate.
