Abstract

The increased growth of the applications of RF MEMS switches in modern communication systems has produced an enlarged need for their accurate and efficient models. This paper deals with a relatively new area of radio-frequency (RF) technology based on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). RF MEMS provides a class of new devices and components which display superior high-frequency performance relative to conventional (usually semiconductor) devices, and which enable new system capabilities. RF MEMS Switches with high reliability, low activation voltage, low insertion loss and high isolation are needed for high performance applications of Microwave and communication engineering. This work focus mainly on improving enforcement and reliability of RF MEMS Switch. The intended design be composed of mechanical structure with micro cantilever beam and capacitive contact type. RF MEMS Switch is designed and simulated in COMSOL Multiphysics, Finite Element Analysis (FEM) Tool. The Switch needs to associate or separate RF (Radio Frequency) Transmission line or some other RF microcircuitary network. The exchanging activity depends on electrostatic power incited between two electrodes of the design. This actuated electrostatic power enables the surface of the cantilever to shaft to do avoidances and the circuit will be shut with the goal that RF line Transmission happens. Deflection of the microcantilever beam relies on the electrostatic power created on the electrodes. This electrostatic power created be affected by the connected voltage over the terminal which should be littler for superior and high dependability criteria.

Key Words
