So this technology uses MEMS to fabricate ultra-tiny replacements for electromechanical relays? Does this mean that other proven technologies such as PIN diodes are not feasible at these frequencies and/or power levels, perhaps due to a high level of "stray" capacitance? Why not "tune" the circuits using varactor diodes to vary capacitance, is it technology or just an IP licensing issue? The context fails to clarify the matter.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
