Two photonic integrated circuits which can be used in a data read-out system are proposed and designed. The designs are developed for use in a neutrino detector but the principle is applicable to a wider range of read-out systems. The first one is an optical serializer integrated with electro-optical modulators and semiconductor optical amplifiers and operates at a single wavelength. The second one employs a wavelength-division-multiplexing scheme and utilizes arrayed waveguide gratings, electro-optical modulators and semiconductor optical amplifiers.
