|Packaging of MEMS for Integrated RF Circuit Verifications|
|Keywords: Magnetic MEMS, Low noise amplifiers, Self-calibration|
|This paper provides development of MEMS switches and packaging of MEMS to test radio frequency circuits used in wireless products such as cell phones and network routers. We discuss fabrication of MEMS using low voltage magnetic materials and their configurations to achieve the optimum switch to test RF low noise amplifiers. We have accomplished a very unique methodology to test low noise amplifiers using built-in sellf-test technique and our MEMS switches are proposed to achieve the verification of low noise amplifiers. Furthermore, we have used MEMS switches that we developed to perform self calibration to correct for the parametric variations and faults within the deep submicron CMOS circuits. We also discuss packaging of MEMS and low noise amplifier using 3D TSV technology.|
