CrossFiber Acquires IP from Photonic Switch Maker
Oct 2012
SAN DIEGO, Oct. 1, 2012 — CrossFiber Inc., a maker of photonic switches incorporating microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology, said it has strengthened its intellectural property portfolio with the acquisition of OMM’s IP for an undisclosed amount.

OMM invented and manufactured Telcordia-qualified MEMS-based photonic switch modules. The purchase by CrossFiber includes OMM’s patent portfolio, invention and lab notebooks, manufacturing know-how and 2-D MEMS switch inventory.

"We now own an even stronger IP portfolio and a deeper base of know-how," said CrossFiber President and CEO Hus Tigli, who also served as CEO of OMM. "Our core technologies, combined with our innovations in automated manufacturing and testing of precision parts, enable us to serve customers demanding performance, economical solutions and volume manufacturing."

CrossFiber’s all-optical LiteSwitch features 3-D MEMS micromirror technology originally started at OMM, coupled with beam control methods developed and licensed by Trex — CrossFiber’s incubator — and CrossFiber's own work in beam control, switch architecture and precision optics.
