It’s been obvious for decades that the microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) switch could potentially replace PIN diode, mechanical, FET, and other types of switches in a broad swath of RF and microwave applications. A MEMS switch has almost everything an engineer could ask for: It’s smaller and lighter than any other switch technology; has very little insertion loss; provides very high isolation; can operate well into the millimeter-wave region; has exceptionally low
