We present a path towards reconfigurable, electrically driven and integrated multiple-port optical circulators. Using this novel device architecture, we demonstrate a six-port circulator with 14.4 dB of isolation between adjacent ports, and four different working configurations. It can be straightforwardly expanded to larger port counts.
