Title: Test Methodologies for Estimating Lifetime of Capacitive MEMS Switches
Agency: DOD
Contract: HQ0147-11-C-7563
Award Amount: $99,921.00
 

Abstract:

This project will identify and demonstrate characterization, testing, and modeling methodologies that significantly improve accelerated testing of high-power RF MEMS switches and phase shifters. These innovations will lead to at least a 5X test time reduction over current real-time life test methodologies. These innovations will help spur the commercialization of RF MEMS switches and phase shifters, impacting a number of radar and communications systems for the US government.
