Abstract

This paper describes a fully packaged 4×4 optical crosspoint switch (OXS) device and several of its application demonstrations. The core switch chip is based on Bristol's unique active vertical coupler (AVC) switching technology. The 4×4 switch is pigtailed with 4-fibre lensed arrays using a Si V-groove technique. The packaged device is further interfaced via an electronic decoder/driver circuitry. Several novel experimental demonstrations are carried out, including optically addressed optical uni-cast routing, optical multicast routing, and packet level automatic gain control (AGC). These experiments highlight the unique performance and versatility of the AVC OXS device.
