Abstract: Charging of dielectric materials in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) actuated electrostatically is a major reliability issue. In our previous work we proposed a feedback loop control method that is implemented as a circuit and that allows smart actuation for switches and varactors. In this paper we discuss system-level modeling of MEMS devices including all aspects of the system: proposed control method, charging dynamics and realistic models of the mechanical components of MEMS.
