Rinaldi and Cassella Awarded Patent for “Microelectromechanical Resonant Circulators”
ECE Associate Professor Matteo Rinaldi and Assistant Professor Cristian Cassella were awarded a patent for “Microelectromechanical resonant circulator”.
Abstract Source: USPTO
A microelectromechanical resonant circulator device is providing, having a substrate, and at least three electrical ports supported on the substrate. At least three electromechanical resonator elements are connected with associated switch elements and an associated port. The switch elements are operative to provide commutation over time of the electromechanical resonator elements.
