This invited talk will present two different technologies which have the potential to increase the data rate and lower the energy-per-bit in communication systems: Millimeter-wave/THz silicon RFICs and RF MEMS tunable networks. The mm-wave silicon RFIC technology is also applicable to a wide range of miniature sensors, such as low power radars and imaging systems, operating at 100 GHz and above. It is seen that these technologies are enabling a whole new set of systems deemed impossible a few years ago, and are now available at low cost. The application areas of these two technologies will have a far reaching effect on our communication and sensor infrastructure.
