We describe the design of a small microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) switched planar inverted F antenna capable of operation in five cellular radio frequency bands. Both simulated and measured results are shown using MEMS devices fabricated in an industrialized process based on high-ohmic silicon. Results show that the antenna bandwidth (or size) and specific absorption rate can be significantly improved using such devices.
