Abstract

We present a microring-based integrated router in Silicon-on-Insulator technology suitable for optical networking at chip level. The switching functionalities in a 3-channels 10 Gbit/s WDM configuration are evaluated through the BER curves. Results show, for a BER of 10-9, a maximum power penalty of 7 dB on the less performing routing path.
