Abstract

RF Micro-Electro-Mechanical-System switches (MEMS) have experienced a tremendous progress during the last decade in terms of technology development and RFapplications. Integrating RF-MEMS switches and MMIC (Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits) is considered the next logical and economical step in MMIC development. The project MEMS-4-MMIC aims at the physical merging of two different concepts: innovative RF-MEMS switches on one side and proven MMIC technology on the other side thus creating highly integrated multifunctional building blocks for highvalue applications such as reconfigurable telecommunication systems, phased arrays for mobile satellite platforms and radar. Within the project, the RF-MEMS MMIC designs will target ohmic switches at frequencies up to approximately 40 GHz.
