This communication discusses the complexity and reliability of switch reconfigurable antenna arrays using frequency-dependent graph models. Several graph models represent array configurations at various frequencies. The correlation and the inverse proportionality between the arrays' complexity and reliability are derived and proven. A process for prioritizing the various antenna configurations to improve the overall array performance is also discussed. Different examples are given to validate the formulations and prove the concept.
