MEMS 1XN Optical Switch, With External PCB

DiCon’s MEMS 1xN Switch provides channel selection between a single input fiber and N output fibers. At the core of the switch is DiCon’s proprietary MEMS chip; an electrostatically driven mirror implemented using single-crystalline silicon and a stiction-free design. The mirror is capable of rotating on two axes, allowing the input light to be redirected back to any desired output in a 2D plane. The switch is bi-directional and can be used as a Nx1 selector switch.
