Claim of US Patent No. 10,659,008

1. A multiplexer that transmits and receives a plurality of high frequency signals via an antenna element, comprising:an antenna connection terminal provided on a first surface of a substrate and connected to the antenna element; and
at least three acoustic wave filters mounted on a second surface of the substrate opposing the first surface; wherein
the at least three acoustic wave filters have mutually different pass bands;
the at least three acoustic wave filters are connected to a common connection terminal;
a first inductance element is connected in a connection path between the antenna connection terminal and the common connection terminal;
each of the at least three acoustic wave filters includes, on a piezoelectric substrate, at least one of a serial arm resonator connected between an input terminal and an output terminal, and a parallel arm resonator connected between a reference terminal and a connection path connecting the input terminal and the output terminal;
the input terminal or the output terminal is connected to, among a plurality of terminals provided on the piezoelectric substrate, an antenna terminal connected to the antenna connection terminal;
the at least three acoustic wave filters include at least one first acoustic wave filter and at least one second acoustic wave filter located at a farther position from the antenna connection terminal than a position of the first acoustic wave filter in a plan view of the substrate; and
among the plurality of terminals, a terminal located at a closest position to the antenna connection terminal in the plan view of the substrate is connected to the second acoustic wave filter as the antenna terminal.
