We present the design and development of an organic package that is compatible with fully released RF microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). The multilayer organic package consists of a liquid-crystal polymer film to provide near hermetic cavities for MEMS. The stack is further built up using organic thin-film polyimide. To demonstrate the organic package, we have designed and implemented a 2-bit true-time delay X-band phase shifter using commercially available microelectromechanical switches. The packaged phase shifter has a measured insertion loss of 2.45 plusmn 0.12 dB/bit at 10 GHz. The worst case phase variation of the phase shifter at 10 GHz is measured to less than 5deg. We have also conducted temperature cycling (-65degC to 150degC) and 85/85 to qualify the packaging structures.
