This paper presents the first 4-element base-station antenna that is passively scanned using low-loss RF MEMS phase shifters. The design is based on packaged RF MEMS SPDT switches, which are capable of handling Watts of RF power with high reliability. The results agree very well with simulations and show pattern scanning to 9° with a measured gain of 8.6-8.3 dB at 2 GHz. The array is capable of handling 5-10 W of power with no distortion.
