Title (EN) OPTICAL CROSSBAR SWITCH
(FR) COMMUTATEUR OPTIQUE A BARRES CROISEES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)There is provided a switch for connecting one or more data inputs to one or more outputs, in which the interconnections are made optically, through the use of light beams directed between the inputs and outputs. An input device is illuminated by a source array such that the selected output depends upon the angle of incidence of the illuminating beam.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un commutateur permettant de connecter une ou plusieurs entrées de données à une ou plusieurs sorties de données. On réalise les interconnexions par voie optique en utilisant des faisceaux lumineux dirigés entre les entrées et les sorties. Un dispositif d'entrée est éclairé par un tableau émetteur de manière que la sortie sélectionnée soit fonction de l'angle d'incidence du faisceau lumineux.
