OMM introduces MEMS-based all-optical switch module

Oct. 12, 2001
Oct. 12, 2001--OMM, Inc., a provider of MEMS-based all-optical switch modules and subsystems, announced its 32x32 all-optical switch module.

OMM, Inc., a provider of MEMS-based all-optical switch modules and subsystems, announced its 32x32 all-optical switch module. The OMM32X32 module is a new addition to the company's extensive family of products for all-optical switching and optical add-drop applications.

The compact module, measuring 200x280x35mm, operates over the full wavelength range of 1290nm to 1610nm and operates independent of signal transmission data rates or signal protocol. With a simple serial control interface and 5 volt operation, the OMM32X32 can optically switch any of 32 input ports to any of 32 output ports. The product is characterized by ultra low power consumption, low insertion loss and milliseconds range switching time.

Samples of the OMM32X32 are available now.
