    2. MEMS = Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems MEMS: An Enabling Technology Microfluidics Pneumatics Optical MEMS Bio-MEMS RF MEMS Purdue microfluidic channel UCLA microgripper Rockwell Switch Berkeley micromirror UC Irvine CD-lab on a chip ALSO KNOWN AS: Microsystems Technology (Europe) Micromachines (Japan)

    3. ANTENNAS • Frequency agile • Self-adaptive FILTERS • Reconfigurable • High-isolation SWITCHES • Compact • Low-power MEMS For High Frequency Circuits RF MEMS technology offers unique advantages in minimizing size and cost. Very low power requirements (W)  Very low insertion loss (0.02  0.2 dB)  Very high linearity (passive devices)  Very compact designs (mm – nm) RF MEMS fabrication is compatible with existing IC techniques.

    4. RF MEMS Elements in Subsystems

    5. RF MEMS Elements in Subsystems

    6. RF MEMS Switches Today: Ohmic

    7. Why are MEMS Switches Unreliable? Switches today suffer from: Contact area wear and damage Poor power handling (< 1W) Hot switching not possible Dielectric charging Degradation in vacuum conditions Mechanical Stress and Creep in high/low Temp. Lack of affordable and reliable packaging

    8. A More Careful Look on Reliability… RF MEMS

    9. What Can Be Done? Eliminate All Contacts!!
