etMEMS™ Octo Full 2×2 Multi-Mode Optical Switch

The etMEMS™ Series Octo Full 2×2 multi-mode fiber optic switch integrates 8 Full 2×2 switches in a single compact format. It is designed for 40G/100G transceiver bypass application. The device connects optical channels by redirecting incoming optical signals into selected output fibers. This is achieved using a proprietary etMEMS™ configuration and activated via an electrical control signal. It uniquely features rugged thermal activated micro-mirror movement instead of rotation, and the novel design significantly simplify the control electronics, offering unprecedented high stability and an unmatched low cost.

We offer the straight and reflective versions for the flexibility to connect fibers. In addition, we also offer the built-in driver version, which features a convenient user interface.
