Abstract
This paper describes a fully packaged 4x4 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 4x4 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.
