We demonstrate one of the first monolithically integrated multiwavelength lasers fabricated in an industrial fab exploring a generic foundry model. The lasers were realized by participating in multi-project wafer run. We present 8-channel sources that use arrayed-waveguide gratings (AWGs) as intra-cavity filters, in two configurations, with and without booster amplifier. The devices operate in the third telecommunication window, around 1.55 \#x03BC;m. The measured optical output power is up to 5dBm with side mode suppression ratio (SMSR) better than 40 dB. Our lasers were fabricated on an indium phosphide (InP) based platform.
