We have developed an easily-assembled optical coupling device which consists of two multifiber array connectors and a single-mode planar waveguide chip whose ends are passively positioned in novel plastic plug components compatible with the multifiber array connectors. The assembled 18 splitter device exhibits a low exess loss of 0.8 dB.
