Abstract:This paper presents top-down holistic design and verification of a MEMS-based 3-D optical switching subsystem utilizing an integrated CAD environment. The subsystem design takes place in a nodal simulation environment that includes models for fibers, lenses, mirrors, control elements, general electronics, and detailed mechanics. In this paper, we explore the design of an optical cross-connect using an optical circuit to evaluate the optical performance of the cross-connect and electromechanical models to assess the tuning limitation imposed by the MEMS mirrors. From the performance specifications, we are able to deduce an optimum cross-connect array size for any given mirror size.
