MEMS 1xN Optical Switch Module

DiCon’s MEMS 1xN Optical Switch Module is based on DiCon’s MEMS 1x8 and 1x4 Optical Switch components. Up to five of the MEMS 1x8 switch components can be configured to provide a compact 1x36 switch. Each MEMS component is based on a micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) chip.


The MEMS 1xN Optical Switch is often used in channel or band monitoring cards to reduce the size and cost of monitoring DWDM networks. Other applications include fiber-based sensing, side-select switching for redundancy and secure communications, and bio-medical and scientific research. Excellent reliability, repeatability and temperature performance makes the MEMS 1xN switch ideal for temperature and environmental sensing equipment, as well as channel monitoring cards.
