Can MEMS Deliver for 5G Mobile Networks? (.PDF Download)

RF microelectromechanical-systems (MEMS) technology has been in use for about two decades, although from a market perspective, the disappointments seem to outweigh the successes. Full deployment of the technology is yet to come, however, and 5G mobile communications standards may be fertile ground to exploit the full potential of MEMS technology.

For more than 20 years, research articles have touted the capabilities of RF-MEMS passive components, such as micro relays and variable capa
