MEMS SWITCHES bcSC 1xN

Bare optical component Switch

The underlying MEMS technology results in low insertion loss and low crosstalk between channels while keeping a constant switching performance over life.

In the bare switch (bcSC variant) the state is set using 4 lines of 0-40V analog voltage. The internal MEMS is NOT ESD protected and needs special care during handling.

FEATURES

• Low insertion loss
• Reliable
• RoHS compliant

APPLICATIONS

• Telecom
• Instrumentation
• Test and measurement

DATASHEET

Sercalo's fiber optic 1xN switches are bidirectional opto-mechanical switches based on a coaxial design where a single MEMS mirror redirects light from a common fiber to one of N ports.

The underlying MEMS technology results in low insertion loss and low crosstalk between channels while keeping a constant switching performance over life.

In the bare switch (bcSC variant) the state is set using 4 lines of 0-40V analog voltage. The internal MEMS is NOT ESD protected and needs special care during handling.

The MEMS component is hermetically sealed and the fiber collimater is laser welded for superior long term stability. No epoxy is present in the optical path.

The part passes Telcordia 1221 reliability qualification. The miniature package withstands rugged environments and is intended for direct mounting on printed circuit boards.

Sercalo’s COAXIAL TYPE bcSC 1xN switch is non latching and breaks the optical connection at power-off, i.e. the common port is not routed to any port and the optical path is open. The switch works over a single band at specified performance. When the wavelength range covers more than one band, the insertion loss increases, but the switching function is still performed.
