Abstract: This review paper described a trend of MEMS switch development towards better performance in actuation voltage, insertion loss, isolation, return loss, switch lifetime, switching speed, and temperature sensitivity for radio frequency applications. Important switch design parameters are discussed briefly as they have significant contribution to the development of RF MEMS switch. The intent of this review is to provide perspective to the new comers in this field, and empower the potential end-users with an overall device picture, current status and a vision of their ultimate performance capability. This paper briefly outlines the research efforts that carried out to maturing this technology.

 

Keywords: MEMS Switch, Reconfigurable Antenna, Radio Frequency
