The first release of the SELMUX platform at ECOC in September 2005 was based on NSG’s proprietary Filter-on-Lens (FOL™) wavelength discrimination technology. By expanding the coverage to include a broad range of chip based filters, the beneficial features of the SELMUX package are now available to the entire field of filter based component applications.
NSG SELMUX is a proprietary packaging platform that leverages the strength of the SELFOC lens technology. Through novel tuning of the refractive index profile of the SELFOC lens used in the SELMUX, optical performance is optimized. Moreover, the SELMUX package is comprised of fewer piece parts than competing chip based 3 port filter package platforms. Fewer piece parts equate to superior reliability and better long term cost reduction potential.
