FIBER OPTICAL MEMS SWITCHES SW1x16 | Rev. 90-1033-2
The component makes an optical connection between an optical port and either one of 16 input or output lines. The highly reliable switching mechanism use integrated micro mirrors and features below 1 ms switching time and below 1.5 dB insertion loss. The switch is powered by a 5 V supply voltage. A 5 V TTL or CMOS drive signal is used to control the switching state.
The switching mechanism offers the reliability of a solid state device; it neither wears out nor degrades over time. Even after billions of cycles, the switching quality stays constant. The miniature package withstands rugged environments and is well suited for direct mounting on printed circuit boards.
