Abstract

A hybrid combination of RF MEMS and microstrip patch triple band inset-fed reconfigurable antenna is presented. A rectangular slot is placed on the antenna to obtain a dual frequency antenna. Furthermore, MEMS switches are placed on the slot to change the electrical length of the slot and obtain a third resonance frequency. Similarly, MEMS switches are used in the inset to match the antenna input impedance at different frequencies. All of the parts are manufactured and the hybrid structure will be built.
