The in the following described HARP transmitter concept is an exciting and unconventional approach to a possible new disruptive rf-transmitter-architecture based on the idea of spectral composition of the desired RF power signal rather than generation by the conventional lineup of D/A conversion, modulation/up-conversion and amplification. The core component of the HARP transmitter is an array of nano-mechanical oscillators featuring an ultrahigh quality factor. Its physical realization faces high technological challenges
