MEMS On-Off Optical Switch

DiCon's MEMS On-Off Optical Switch has one input and one output fi ber and provides the ability to turn on or off the optical signal passing through it. These fi ber optic switches are compact cylindrical devices driven by a direct analog voltage and are intended to be integrated into a larger optical system.

Applications

  • Lifetime > 1 Billion Switch Cycles
  • Proven MEMS Technology
  • Qualifi ed to GR-1221
