This book discusses radio frequency microelectromechanical systems (RF MEMS) based control components and will be useful for researchers and R&D engineers. It offers an in depth study, performance analysis and extensive characterization on micromachined switches and phase shifters. The reader will learn about basic design methodology and techniques to carry out extensive measurements on MEMS switches and phase shifters which include electrical, mechanical, power handling, linearity, temperature stability, reliability and radio frequency performance. Practical examples included in the book will help readers to build high performance systems/subsystems using micromachined circuits.

Key Features

  • Provides simple design methodology of MEMS switches and switching networks including SPST to SP16T switches.
