Abstract
MicroElectroMechanical (MEMs) components and their applications to different RF and millimeter wave tunable filters are presented in this paper. Original topologies, design flows and RF performances of elementary building components like inductors and tunable capacitors are first detailed. Quartz or silicon-based inductors with quality factor Q in the order of 55 2 GHz and broad range MEMs varactors with continuous tuning values have been developed. Then, those elements are used to obtain several RF lumped element filters, one tunable discretely between 2.5 GHz and 3.5 GHz and another one tunable continuously between 1.8 GHz and 1.9 GHz. Finally, a distributed millimeter wave filter is proposed, with tunable center frequency and tunable bandwidth.
