The focus of this presentation is in reconfigurable matching networks and impedance tuners. Reconfigurable matching networks can be applied for several different end applications from handset radios to sub-millimeter wave scientific experiments. Impedance tuners are mostly suitable for measurement systems. Low losses and high linearity are very important properties needed both in impedance tuners and matching networks. From this reason, both matching networks and impedance tuners are some of the most promising application areas of RF MEMS. RF MEMS has both of these properties and the technology can be easily used in wide frequency range.
