We propose a lumped element re-configurable impedance tuner with wide impedance coverage within the 0.7 - 1.5 GHz frequency band. The fabricated device is compact and the design is centered around 0.9 GHz using 4 BST MEMS varactors for continuous tuning covering a VSWR up to 55:1 on the smith chart.
