This work is focused on technical aspects of novel integrated multichannel transceivers for application in fiber-optic access systems. We present and discuss several InP-based WDM transmitters and receivers, designed at Eastern Europe Design Hub of Warsaw University of Technology and manufactured in generic technology by the SMART Photonics foundry. The designed circuits allow to transmit/receive information using four wavelength channels compliant with the ITU grid, making use of a set of DBR lasers followed by Mach-Zehnder modulators. Arrayed wavelength gratings (AWG) provide multiplexing/demultiplexing functionality, while an array of PIN photodiodes enables receiving the transmitted signals. Fig. 1. presents the designed mask layouts of the two exemplary transceivers, the devices have dimensions of 4.6 mm × 4.0 mm.
