Abstract

In this paper, a circuit model to predict the microwave response of a shunt-connected capacitive microelectromechanical coplanar switch is proposed. The numerical values of the lumped elements composing the equivalent circuit are computed by means of a fully analytic approach. In particular, the contribution of resistive and inductive parasitic elements has been evaluated by using closed-form expressions. Configurations characterized by different technological solutions have been obtained and modeled. Simulations performed with the proposed approach correlate very well with actual measurements.
