This paper presents an analysis of tunable high impedance surface (HIS) integrated with RF MEMS varactors at 60 GHz. The HIS phase response with different number of RF MEMS varactors integrated with dipoles is shown. The effect of shifting RF MEMS varactors across the proposed dipoles and patches are highlighted. This paper provides a guideline for designing HIS integrated with RF MEMS varactors. It illustrates the significance of RF MEMS varactor location versus HIS phase response.
