Compact transmitter and receiver modules with monolithic optoelectronic-integrated circuits, i.e., OEIC's, are demonstrated, and 400- and 800-Mbit/s transmission experiments are successfully carried out over up to 4 and 2 km, respectively, with these modules, for the first time. The design of the monolithic-integrated circuits and the compact module structure are presented. The soldering technique based on the use of YAG laser simplifies the packaging procedures, and an efficient and simple scheme for coupling between OEIC's and fibers make the OEIC modules compact. Both modules are attractive for applications in high data-rate communication systems, particularly in local area networks, CATV systems, and intra-office links.
