Research Institution
The Missile Defense Agency, assigned with the extremely critical and highly complicated task of protecting the U.S. against ballistic and cruise missiles, has an urgent need for innovative and extremely compact communication systems for the Multiple Kill Vehicle (MKV) program. In response to the above need, EMAG Technologies in collaboration with Purdue University proposes to develop a novel, miniaturized, reconfigurable communication system based on RF MEMS varactors. The proposed architecture requires a number of novel technologies that permit excellent RF performance, limited power consumption, low size and cost. These technologies are: RF MEMS varactors, Phase shifters, tunable filters, and reconfigurable miniaturized antennas. Each one of the proposed structures is based on an already developed MEMS varactor design, which demonstrated excellent performance and reliability. Moreover, on-wafer packaging and three-dimensional integration will be utilized for the hermetic sealing of all the proposed components. This packaging scheme will be based on EMAG's already developed low-loss, hermetic package for single RF MEMS switches.
