We demonstrate an eight-channel wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) modulator module that monolithically integrates arrayed waveguide gratings and semiconductor optical amplifiers and electroabsorption optical modulators arrays. The compact module can generate individual optical signals for each WDM channel with low optical and electrical crosstalk. We show two configurations for the narrow channel spacing of 25 GHz and high throughput of beyond 80 Gb/s. Combining this WDM modulator with a multi-wavelength light source is a promising approach to creating a compact WDM optical transmitter.
