The NanoSpeed™ Series 1×3/1×4 solid-state fiber optic switch connects optical channels by redirecting an incoming optical signal into a selected output optical fiber. This is achieved using patent non-mechanical configurations with solid-state all-crystal designs, eliminating the need for mechanical movement and organic materials. The device is intrinsically bidirectional and has variable coupler behavior in which light is transferred from one to another port without loss. The NS fiber optic switch is designed to meet the most demanding switching requirements of ultra-high reliability, fast response time, and continuous switching operation. The switch is intrinsically bidirectional and selectable for polarization-independent or polarization-maintain by the fiber type.
The NS Series 1×3/1×4 switch is cascaded with several NS 1×4. The device is mounted on a specially designed electronic PCB and controlled by 5V TTL input signals. A wall plug power supply is provided. A box-mounted version is an option.
The rise/fall time is intrinsically related to the crystal properties, and the repetition rate is associated with the driver. There are poor frequency response sections due to the device resonances. The NS devices are shipped mounted on a tuned driver.
The NS series switches respond to a control signal with any arbitrary timing with frequency from DC up to MHz. The switch is usually mounted on a tuned driver before shipping. The electrical power consumption is related to the repetition rate at which the switch is operated.
The dual-stage configuration increases the extinction ratio or cross-talk value.
