Design, Optimization and Fabrication of Amorphous Silicon Tunable RF MEMS Inductors and Transformers
(University of Waterloo, 2007-01-19)
High performance inductors are playing an increasing role in modern communication systems. Despite the superior performance offered by discrete components, parasitic capacitances from bond pads, board traces and packaging ...
Novel RF MEMS Varactors Realized in Standard MEMS and CMOS Processes
(University of Waterloo, 2007-12-21)
Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) varactors have the potential to replace conventional varactor diodes, due to their high loss and non-linearity, in many applications such as phase shifters, oscillators, and tunable ...
Mechanically Tunable RF/Microwave Filters: from a MEMS Perspective
(University of Waterloo, 2007-06-26)
RF/microwave tunable filters are widely employed in radar systems, measurement instruments, and communication systems. By using tunable filters, the frequency bandwidth is utilized effectively and the system cost and ...
