RF MEMS Switches and Integrated Switching Circuits
RF MEMS switches and switching circuits are a new research field that focuses on developments in both micro RF switches and micromachined switching circuits.
RF MEMS Switches and Integrated Switching Circuits builds on the extensive body of literature that exists in research papers on analytical and numerical modeling and design based on RF MEMS switches and micromachined switching circuits and presents a unified framework with new RF MEMS approaches spanning developments from RF MEMS switches to RF switching circuits and spanning scales from “MEMS switch component” to “MEMS switching circuit systems”.
Included in this book is a comprehensive approach to all the different aspects of switches and switching circuit systems from design through fabrication and experimentation.
The following topics are also covered in additional detail:
(1) RF MEMS switches, (2) Reconfigurable switching circuits, capacitance switches, DC switches, (3) Single-pole double-throw (SPDT) circuit, (4) Passband tunable filters and bandstop tunable filter, (5) Multi-pole reconfigurable circuits.
Presents RF Switches and switching circuit MEMS devices in a unified framework covering all aspects of engineering innovation, design, modeling, fabrication, control and experimental implementationDiscusses RF switch devices in detail, with both system and component-level circuit integration using micro- and nano-fabrication techniquesIncludes an emphasis on design innovation and experimental relevance rather than basic electromagnetic theory and device physics
