Abstract
Electrostatically actuated MEMS switch with the resistive contact is presented. Design of the switch includes the active contact breaking mechanism, which allows to detach the beam from the signal electrode in case of sticking. The mechanism is realized by the presence of two driving electrodes under the beam. The switch is fabricated by the surface micromachining. Finite element simulation and experimental investigation of the switch in a cold regime are performed.
