ARCES - University of Bologna Towards a MEMS technology enabled terminal A MEMS technology enabled wireless transceiver system: MEMS passives within a traditional system architecture (e.g. high- Q inductors, MEMS tuning capacitors) MEMS introduce new or improved functionalities at the the circuit level (e.g. MEMS RF-switches, extremely high-Q resonators-filters) that could ease key specifications on other circuit blocks MEMS allow for alternative solutions for the receiver-transmitter system architecture (e.g. through MEMS high-Q filter banks) Approaches for increasing integration: Hybrid solutions System-on-package Chip-on-chip Chip bonding Flip-chip System-on-chip
