In this contribution, the use of CVD diamond as a multi-functional material for DC coupled microwave switches is discussed. CVD diamond is a new MEMS material with extraordinary properties, especially for heavy duty applications in extreme environments. An all-diamond cantilever based switch is described using two different actuation principles. First results for a coplanar waveguide configuration are presented.
