Abstract:

Radio frequency is the most basic used technique for wireless communication. These are electromagnetic waves that are generated for the transmission and reception of data. This radio frequency fall in the frequency range of 3 MHz to 3 GHz. The RF generally uses electrical rather than mechanical oscillations but, there also exist the RF mechanical systems. One of these systems is the RF MEMS switches. A RF MEMS or radio frequency microelectromechanical system is a microelectronic component that comprises of very small sub –millimeter size particles which provide radio frequency for operation and working of the component. This technology is bound to reduce the weight, cost, size and durability of the components. The main MEMS devices for prevailing RF architectures are switches in radar systems and as filter in communication systems. Here below in the paper we will discuss about the use of RF mems switches in radar system. In coming generation we would need a technology with increased functionality and better performance of system. Therefore to meet the expectations of the new generation satellites and communication processes and to maximize data and minimize the operation cost it would be preferred to move to higher frequencies. This circuit minimization and higher frequency could be achieved by using RF MEMS switch.
