Abstract

In this paper, a CMOS compatible micromechanical RF switch is reported and its mechanical performance is studied on a wide temperature range from 295 K down to 20 K. A switch with a clamped-clamped structure showed plastic deformation during the cooling and finally failed during the warming cycle. On the contrary, a switch with a cantilever structure was functional throughout the test cycles.
