Additional Information

Active Components

Cubo utilizes its unique and patented packaging technology to combine passive optical wavelength division (de-)multiplexers with active elements such as lasers, detectors and others.

The result is our ACTIVE-Cube product family: ultra-compact, high speed multi-lambda Receiever / Transmitter Optical Sub-Assemblies (ROSA / TOSA) and the integrated multi-lambda detectors for T&M and sensing applications for multiplexing. 

Active-Cubes ROSA

Active-Cubes ROSA

CUBO provides multi-lambda ROSAs (Receiver Optical Sub-Assemblies) for integration in high-speed transceivers. Our ROSAs are available for 40G and 100G transceivers in accordance with IEEE 802.3ba Ethernet Task Force (baseline) standards.

Active-Cubes TOSA

Active-Cubes TOSA

We offer multi-lambda TOSAs (Transmitter Optical Sub-Assemblies) for integration in high-speed transceivers. Our TOSAs are available for 40G and 100G transceivers in accordance with IEEE 802.3ba standards.

Detector Cubes

Detector Cubes

Cube Optics integrates wavelength management (de-)multiplexing and photo detectors into a simple interface.

This new device features the world's most compact form-factor and highest micro-optic integration density adaptable for wide range of opto-electronic applications in the areas of test and measurement, sensing and others.

Passive Components

Apart from all types of optical multiplexers we offer a comprehensive range of passive fiber-optical components, such as fiber-optical switches or variable optical attenuators (VOAs), fused couplers, PLC splitters, fixed attenuators, patch cords and adapters.

Attenuators

Attenuators

We offer a broad range of fixed attenuators, either as in-line or as pluggable attenuators with different attenuations and various connectors.

Couplers

Couplers

Couplers are a bidirectional device with three or more fiber ends, combining the signals of two or more input ports into one output port. They can also be referred to as splitter. Fused Biconical Tapering (FBT) refers to a manufacturing process for passive optical network components. It consist of twisting two bare fibers exactly to each other, stretching and then fusing the fibers together also called "tapering".

CUBO’s Fused Couplers are based on the classic technology of fiber fusion. The devices are used to split respectively combine power or can even be made to be wavelength sensitive and to provide a WDM functionality.

Splitters

Splitters

Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) splitters follow a specific manufacturing process for optical passive network components. They consist of a waveguide array that is applied to a silica chip by using a photolithographic masking process. HUBER+SUHNER offers a wide range of PLC splitters for all applications.

CUBO provides a great variety of hi-isolation bandsplitters, based on Thin Film Filters (TFF): Simple Wideband WDMs which create two channels at 1310 & 1550 nm, each with a bandwidth up to 100 nm. Or different CWDM bandsplitters for CWDM upgrades and extensions from e.g. 4 channels to 8 channels. Here, an important characteristic is the number of skipped (not-useable) channels, reaching from 0 to 2 channels.

Our Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) Splitters are a complementary splitting option to the fused couplers. When it comes to higher splitting ratios (> 1:4) they offer a lower loss and an overall better performance.

This makes them the ideal choice for FTTx applications with splitting rations of up to 1:64. We offer them as plain devices with or without connectors but as well packaged in accordance with your specific needs in splice trays, cassettes, line cards modules etc.

Switch Cubes

Switch Cubes

We offer a great variety of switches for telecom or sensor applications, ranging from 1x1 to 1x16 ports, applied in variable optical attenuation, protection, bypass switching or sensing applications, supporting multi mode to single mode, latching or non-latching with or without state monitoring.

So, there isn’t much that can’t be switched!

Multiplexers

CWDM Color-Cubes

CWDM Color-Cubes

Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing (CWDM) is an excellent choice for increasing bandwidth capacity while keeping costs down. The COLOR-Cube family is based on standard Thin Film Filter (TFF) technology with a proprietary packaging. The results are smallest component dimensions, combined with an outstanding performance and reliability.

DWDM Color-Cubes

DWDM Color-Cubes

While we use our patented packaging and assembly technology for the wider WDM grids, we also rely on classical cascading of 3-ports assembled into modules for the narrow DWDM grids. We supply any combinations and channel amounts, ranging from 400GHz to 50GHz,.

Only a few examples are mentioned here on the website. Contact us for customised configurations!

SENSOR-Cubes

SENSOR-Cubes

Our SENSOR-Cubes split or combine different bands, ranging from UV, VIS to IR, with a ultra high out-off band rejection of up to 90dB. They are used e.g. for Raman and fluorescence spectroscopy, sensing and microscopy.
