We report on the optical performance for a reconfigurable WDM router implemented by a low-voltage analog micromirror array. The system exhibits an optical insertion loss of 5 dB and a flat-top spectral response. Both the device and the system exhibit excellent repeatability (<0.12%) and stability (<0.16%) for open-loop operation.
