International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 62047-5:2011
Title Semiconductor devices - Micro-electromechanical devices - Part 5: RF MEMS switches
Project Number 22629
Abstract/Scope IEC 62047-5:2011 describes terminology, definition, symbols, test methods that can be used to evaluate and determine the essential ratings and characteristic parameters of RF MEMS switches. The statements made in this standardization are also applicable to RF (Radio Frequency) MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) switches with various structures, contacts (d.c. contact and capacitive contact), configurations (series and shunt), switching networks (SPST, SPDT, DPDT, etc.), and actuation mechanism such as electrostatic, electro-thermal, electromagnetic, piezoelectric, etc. The RF MEMS switches are promising devices in advanced mobile phones with multi-band/mode operation, smart radar systems, reconfigurable RF devices and systems, SDR (Software Defined Radio) phones, test equipments, tunable devices and systems, satellite, etc. The contents of the corrigendum of March 2012 have been included in this copy.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
