Fiber Optical Switches
MEMS 1×16 Non-latching SM Fiber Optic Switch
The etMEMSTM Series 1×16 Non-Latching Fiberoptic switch connects optical channels by redirecting incoming optical signals into selected output fibers. This is achieved using a patent pending MEMS configuration and activated via an electrical control signal. It uniquely features rugged thermal activated micro-mirror movement instead of rotation, and latched to preserve the selectd optical path after the drive signal has been removed.
This novel design significantly reduces packaging requirement, offering unprecedented high stability as well as an unmatched low cost.
