We propose a reliable, low-complexity particle swarm optimisation (PSO) approach to control semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA)-based switches. We experimentally demonstrate less than 610 ps off-on switching (settling) time and less than 2.2% overshoot with 20x lower sampling rate and 8x reduced DAC resolution.
