Article Preview

This paper presents a tunable inductor using MEMS technology .This tunable spiral inductor is designed in order to be used in RF circuits such as : controlled oscillators with voltage (VCO) , matching networks ,amplifiers etc . The electrostatic method is employed for tuning the inductor by the movement of cantilever beam downward and changing the value of magnetic flux. Value of inductance varies fram 1.15nh to 0.561 nh .therefore ,tunablity of 66.21% was achieved .Maximum quality factor in the above inductor was achieved az 13.88 in the frequency 0f 12 GHz and the value of resonance frequency was achieved as 19.5 GHz
