Fully integrated, high yielding, high reliability DC contact MEMS switch technology & control IC in standard plastic packages

IEEE

2011-10-28

In this paper we present a fully integrated, high yielding, high reliability DC contact microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) switch technology. A high voltage double-diffused metal-oxide-semiconductor (DMOS) driver application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) is co-packaged with a single-pole-four-throw (SP4T) DC contact MEMS switch in a 5×4×1mm 24-pin quad flat no leads (QFN) plastic package.
