The Path of RF-MEMS: Past, Current and Future Perspectives

July 31 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

RF-MEMS passive components have been on the landscape of research for about three decades now. Despite the wide discussion of novel designs with unprecedented RF performance, the actual potential of such a technology seems yet to display. At the same time, market exploitation of RF-MEMS is relatively recent and still needs to consolidate.
The aim of this webinar is to discuss RF-MEMS technology in a rather comprehensive way, covering its inception, ups and downs, market penetration and its potential against future communications paradigms.
The webinar is arranged in four sections, briefly described as follows:
– History of MEMS/RF-MEMS. Discussion of the inception and technology evolution of RF-MEMS, intertwined with the advancement of MEMS solutions for sensors and actuators.
– RF-MEMS at FBK. Brief outlook of the research activities and RF-MEMS devices portfolio at Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK), in Italy.
– RF-MEMS vs. market. Critical discussion of the complex and time-consuming path from research to the first market applications of MEMS-based RF passives.
– What’s next with 6G & FN. Broadening the point of view, brief discussion of the envisaged pivotal role of Micro & Nanotechnologies (MEMS/NEMS) in the next paradigms of 6G and Future Networks (FN) and focus on how RF-MEMS may contribute to such a challenge.
