Paper Abstract

Applications of MEMS to RF/microwaves wireless communications circuits and systems are presented. The ability of MEMS' fabrication techniques to enhacne the performance of passive components in particular, capacitors, inductors, transmission lines, and switches is addressed. A number of potential wireless system opportunities, in particular, wireless transceivers, routing networks, and tracking antennas for mobile multimedia communications, awaiting the maturation of MEMS are pointed out.
