Present technology demands reduced manufacturing cost, size, weight and improved performance for wireless and location services exploitation like GPS, as well as for the millimeter wave devices. This kind of demand for wider bandwidth along with state-of-the- mart performance can be accomplished with the use of micromachining and MEMS technology [1]. Developing micromachined technology is also essential for the future of integrating the entire communication system on a single chip.
