Abstract

this paper proposes a new and simple RF-MEMS dynamics characterization set-up, based on instrumentation typically available in microwave laboratories. The switching and release times of different RF-MEMS DC-contact switches from FBK-irst have been measured. Results demonstrate the suitability of the proposed measurement set-up for RF-MEMS switch dynamic characterization and its capability to measure extremelyshort switching times and its excellent dynamic range.
