New Optical MEMS Technology Boasts Low Loss, Low Voltage Operation

Based on single crystal silicon and electromagnetic actuation, the new Extremely Low-loss Inductive Torsional Engine (ELITE) technology results in low insertion loss and low drive voltage. This low-loss switching technology makes it possible to use less optically efficient but more manageable fiber ribbon array connectors, reducing service time from days to minutes, according to the company. With low voltage, it is also possible to integrate MEMS with CMOS ASIC parts, eliminating external driver circuitry.
