C1.3 - Advanced Sensory Electronics and Systems with Self-x Capabilities by MEMS Switch Integration

M. Akmal Johar & A. Koenig
After entering mass application, more stringent requirements on flexibility, accuracy and dependability are imposed on sensory systems and their electronic embodiment. Analog static and dynamic reconfiguration, culminating in so called self-x features, e.g., self-trimming or -repairing, requires capable switch resources. While other switching solutions in electromechanical relays and CMOS switches have their own advantages and disadvantages, MEMS switches can become an alternative in switching solutions. Our research group focuses on applying and designing MEMS switches...
