This paper introduces the scattering matrix for Total Internal Reflection (TIR) electro-optic switch and Spanke switch fabric. The transfer functions of the switch and switch fabric are derived through Mason's gain formula. The scattering matrix of the switch fabric is formed using star product of switch element's scattering matrices. These transfer functions can be made to analyze the responses of the switch and fabric. Finally, generic model for transfer function of 'n' port switch fabric is proposed.
