Practical and theoretical coverage of RF MEMS for circuits and devices

New RF and microwave frequency MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) have potentially enormous and widespread applications in the telecommunications industry. Components based on this technology—such as switches, varactors, and phase shifters—exhibit virtually no power consumption or loss, making them ideally suited for use in modern telecommunications and wireless devices.

This book sets out the basics of RF MEMS and describes how to design practical devices and circuits. As well as covering fundamentals, Gabriel Rebeiz offers expert tips for designers and presents a range of real-world applications. Throughout, the author utilizes actual engineering examples to illustrate basic principles in theory and practice. Detailed discussion of cutting-edge fabrication and packaging techniques is provided.

Suitable as a tutorial for electrical and computer engineering students, or as an up-to-date reference for practicing circuit designers, RF MEMS provides the most comprehensive available survey of this new and important technology.
