RF-MEMS based components such as inductors, variable capacitors, transmission line, filter, switches, phase-shifter, and resonators are superior in performances in term of quality factor, noise, linearity, power consumption, size, and cost, which cannot be achieved by conventional approach, thereby, prime candidate for ubiquitous connectivity. This work discusses the recent trends in wireless connectivity and gives the brief overview of the RF-MEMS enabled front ends, especially, RF signal source (VCOs) that can be extended to microwave, and is also amenable for integrated circuit (IC) fabrication
