MEMS Jumpstart Series: Creating an optical switch

Written by: Mentor Graphics | Published:

High-speed optical networks make it possible for people around the world to instantaneously communicate and share ideas. Tiny MEMS optical switches play a critical role in these enormous optical fibre systems. These switches combine mechanical, optical, and electrical domains, making them a good learning device for MEMS design using Tanner EDA tools. This whitepaper illustrates the creation of a 2x2 optical switch.
