4 Essential ratings and characteristics
4.1 Identification and types
General description of the function of the RF MEMS circulator/isolator and their applications should be stated. The statement should include the details of manufacturing technologies about the RF MEMS circulator/isolator with different operation, configuration, and actuation mechanism. The statement should also include packaged form including terminal numbering and package materials.
The RF MEMS circulator/isolator shall be clearly and durably marked in the order given below:
a) manufacture’s name or trade mark;
b) device type and serial number;
c) year and week (or month) of manufacture;
d) terminal identification (optional);
e) factory identification code (optional).
4.2 Application and specification description
