This paper presents a frequency reconfigurable slot dipole array operating at millimeter-wave frequency band. Dual frequency operation of the array is achieved by using commercial packaged RF-MEMS switches. RF-MEMS switches located on the dipole arms control the electrical length of the slot and enable dual frequency operation.
