Modeling and optimization of RF reconfigurable tuners with computationally efficient time-domain techniques

Abstract

Modern RF-MEMS device design is difficult due to the lack of tools capable of simulating highly integrated structures. This paper presents methods in which the FDTD technique can be used to model a reconfigurable RF-MEMS tuner. A new method of modeling a conductor intersecting a cell is presented. In addition, code parallelization and variable gridding are… (More)
