In this paper, we report on recent results obtained within a pan-European research effort aiming at a successful integration of RF MEMS switches in a GaAs MMIC foundry process technology. Testing and characterization of GaAs based MEMS switches and RF circuits show promising results with respect to switch cycling tests, micro-seconds switching times and the relatively low losses demonstrated up to millimetre-wave frequencies. Compact GaAs RF MEMS based phase shifters together with a possible packaging solution are also presented.
