Abstract (40-Word Limit): We present a FPGA controlled 4x4 integrated WDM optical cross-connect followed by wavelength converters as optical module for building a large port optical packet switch. Error free operation is obtained for 4 wavelength channels at 40 Gb/s NRZ with 4 dB penalty, switching time of 25 ns and energy consumption of 73,75 pJ/b.
