Novel Test Fixture for Studying Microcontact Reliability and Performance

Project by Protap Mahanta Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology is widely used in applications ranging from sensing to switching technology due to its low cost, low power consumption, and small geometries. Microswitches are an example of a MEMS technology that shows promising performances in direct current (DC) and radio frequency (RF) applications. However, reliability is of great concern for […]
