RF-MEMS Technology for High-Performance Passives

The challenge of 5G mobile applications
Jacopo Iannacci


This book outlines the intrinsic potential of RF‑MEMS technology with specific focus on 5G mobile communications and services. Commencing with a review of the characteristics of RF‑MEMS in relation to the specifications of interest for 5G, the book proceeds to develop practical insight concerning the design and development of RF‑MEMS including case studies of design concepts. Including multiphysics simulation and animations, the book will be essential reading for both academic and industrial researchers and engineers.

About Editors

See revised: Jacopo Iannacci is Researcher in MEMS technology with the Center for Materials and Microsystems (CMM) at Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) in Trento, Italy, since 2007. His scientific focuses are on (compact) modelling, design, optimisation, integration, packaging and testing for reliability of RF-MEMS (Radio Frequency MicroElectroMechanical Systems) passive devices/networks, EH-MEMS (Energy Harvesting MEMS), as well as SA-MEMS (MEMS Sensors and Actuators).

Jacopo Iannacci has authored and co-authored numerous scientific contributions for international journals and conference proceedings, as well as books and several book chapters in the field of MEMS and RF-MEMS technology.
