In this letter, we demonstrate a novel monolithically integrated photonic multiwavelength transmitter that was realized by integrating an arrayed waveguide grating-based laser with selective distributed Bragg reflector mirrors and Mach-Zehnder modulators. The integrated circuit was designed according to a generic integration model, by utilizing standardized photonic building blocks, and was fabricated on an InP-based platform in a multiproject wafer run. The device delivers above 1 mW of optical power into the fiber with a side mode suppression ratio better than 40 dB. The linewidth of the generated signals is 275 kHz. We achieved error free 50-km transmission at the modulation data rate of 10 Gb/s per channel, for a received power of -26.5 dBm.
