Touted as the industry's first 64x64 three-dimensional MEMS-based optical switch component for optical networking systems, the 5200 series switch offers 64 input and 64 output ports in a small form-factor. It also contains the control electronics needed to form a self-contained subsystem, permitting quick integration into optical networking systems.
Designed to be in the core of all-optical cross connects and add/drop multiplexers, the switch module uses a scalable, 3-D architecture to manipulate optical signals without the need to convert the signals to electrical form. The small form factor package measures approximately 9" x 10" x 4". Samples are available.
