Embodiments of a tunable bandpass microelectromechanical (MEMS) filter are described. In one embodiment, such a filter includes a pair of arch beam microresonators (30, 31), and a pair of voltage sources (50, 51) electrically coupled to apply a pair of adjustable voltage biases (VT1, VT2) across respective ones of the pair of arch beam microresonators. The pair of voltage sources offer independent tuning of the bandwidth of the filter. Based on the structure and arrangement of the filter, it can be tunable by 125% or more by adjustment of the adjustable voltage bias. The filter also has a relatively low bandwidth distortion, can exhibit less than 2.5dB passband ripple, and can exhibit sideband rejection in the range of at least 26dB.
