Paper Abstract

The design, fabrication, and mechanical characterization of a compact-reduced stiction see-saw radio frequency MEMS switch are presented. The switch has a resonance frequency of 9.8 kHz with a corresponding switching speed of 46  μs. Use of a floating metal layer and optimal contact area ensures reduced stiction and smaller capacitive leakage. Overall size of the switch is 0.535 (0.50×1.070) mm2. Reduction in up-state capacitance also results in improvement in self-actuation voltage, insertion, and return loss. The optimized topology has improved the stiction and power handling of the switch.
