Greatly improved and variable MEMS phase shifter for millimeter-wave applications

Technology Area: Electronics, Sensors & Communications

Commercial Maturity: Concept

Abstract: For millimeter-wave applications in sensing, radar or ultra-high data rate communication systems, highly variable, low loss phase shifters are not yet available. The proposed silicon-based technology realizes actuated fingers which in turn affect the phase of the signal, achieving lowest signal loss and a huge range of controllable phases.
