Prof. Liwei Lin

MEMS Components for mm-Wave Radar and Communications

This presentation will discuss recent advancements on innovative processes toward low-cost, batch-fabricated, miniaturized and integrated millimeterwave systems for sensing, imaging and communication applications. The system front-end is based on the electronically-controlled millimeterwave beam-former architectures with new manufacturing approaches utilizing micromachining techniques to fabricate three-dimensional, radio-frequency structures including waveguides, filters, phase shifters, antennas and other passive components in a batch fashion. Several enabling plastic micro-manufacturing process modules have been established, including plastic molding, embossing, mechanical polishing, assembly and bonding processes.
