Summary: A non-blocking optomechanical matrix switch has been developed that is assembled using cassettes as units. Switching can be accomplished between two ferrule-terminated-fiber groups by automatic disconnection and reconnection. The fabricated 100100, 3.1-mm-ferrule-pitch, 710W490D500H (mm) switch exhibits a mean insertion loss of 0.78dB in the 1.31-µm wavelength.
