  • Patent number: 8742516
    Abstract: A high frequency-MEMS switch with a bendable switching element, whose one end is placed on a high resistivity substrate provided with an insulator, furthermore with a contact electrode to supply charge carriers to the substrate, wherein an electrical field can be produced to create an electrostatic bending force on the switching element between the switching element and the substrate, wherein at least one implantation zone is formed in the substrate, essentially directly beneath the insulator, the implantation zone is contacted with the contact electrode, which is located above the insulator, through an opening in the insulator, and also has ohmic contact with the substrate.

  • Patent number: 8736403
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides example resonance filters and methods for making the same. The resonance filter includes a first layer having n adjacent resonance cavities, n being at least 2 and said cavities each being separated from one another by a partition wall. The resonance filter also includes a second layer having at least n?1 coupling cavities. The cavities in the first layer are formed as resonance cavities and those in the second layer are formed as (a) coupling cavity/cavities and are open on one side. The second layer is arranged on the first layer in such a way that the resonance cavities in the first layer are interconnected by the coupling cavity/cavities in the second layer. Further, the resonance filter is configured as a monolithic component.

  • Patent number: 7994996
    Abstract: A plurality of antenna elements on a dielectric substrate are adapted to launch or receive electromagnetic waves in or from a direction substantially away from either a convex or concave edge of the dielectric substrate, wherein at least two of the antenna elements operate in different directions. Slotlines of tapered-slot endfire antennas in a first conductive layer of a first side of the dielectric substrate are coupled to microstrip lines of a second conductive layer on the second side of the dielectric substrate. A bi-conical reflector, conformal cylindrical dielectric lens, or discrete lens array improves the H-plane radiation pattern. Dipole or Yagi-Uda antenna elements on the conductive layer of the dielectric substrate can be used in cooperation with associated reflective elements, either alone or in combination with a corner-reflector of conductive plates attached to the conductive layers proximate to the endfire antenna elements.
