focus of this book develops around HW, and in particular on low-complexity
components for Radio Frequency (RF) applications. To this end, Microsystem
(MEMS) technology for RF passive components, known as RF-MEMS, is employed,
discussing its potentialities in the application frame of 5G.
approach adopted is practical, and a significant part of the content can be
directly used by scientists involved in the field, to put their hand on actual
design, optimization and development of innovative RF passive components in
MEMS technology for 5G and beyond applications. This update (which includes a
review of the main approaches to the modelling and simulations of MEMS and
RF-MEMS devices) is timely and will find a wider readership as it crosses into
the translational aspects of applied research in the subject.
