A novel design of a process-insensitive latchable 2 × 2 optical cross connector for single- and multimode optical MEMS fiber switches is proposed. This design utilizes suspension beams with integrated springs to provide stable positioning and process independence. The ANSYS simulation of the required force versus the displacement shows that the latching force is only 27 μN, and the return force is only 6 μN.
