MEMS 1×2 Reflective Non-latching SM Optical Switch

The etMEMS™ 1×2 Reflective Non-latching Fiber Optical Switch 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, moving in and out optical paths instead of rotating mirror. This novel design significantly simplifies the control electronics, offering unprecedented high stability, ultra compact dimension, and an unmatched low cost.
