MEMS 1x8 Fiber Optical Switch - Latching

  • High Reliability
  • Ultra-Small Size
  • 1260 -1610 nm
  • SM and PM
  • Low Cost
  • Intrinsic Tolerance to ESD
  • Direct TTL Control



The MEMSTM 1×8 Latching Type Series Fiber Optic Switch connects optical channels by redirecting incoming optical signals into selected output fibers. This is achieved using a patent-pending MEMSTM configuration and activated via an electrical control signal. It uniquely features rugged thermal activated micro-mirror movement instead of rotation.

This novel design significantly reduces packaging requirement, and simplifies the driving electronics, offering unprecedented high stability as well as an unmatched low cost.
