MEMS-based switches offer high reliability that passed well over 10⁹ cycles of switching tests. We offer both 2D and 1D movement-based MEMS switches. The 1D motion MEMS mirror (in or out of the light path) offers low crosstalk or high on/off ratio, fault-safe latching, free space platform. The 2D rotating MEMS mirror offers cost-effectiveness and compactness for 1xN, MxN, when N>8.
