Abstract
An optical crossbar switch using semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) as switching elements is presented. The switch is constructed using the strictly non-blocking matrix-vector multiplier (MVM) architecture and is capable of interconnecting 8 single mode fiber optic inputs and outputs. Successful operation of the switch has been demonstrated with the High Performance Parallel Interface (HIPPI) protocol and 1.1 Gb/s digital data streams as well as 1.4 GHz analog video signals from a satellite downlink.
