This paper presents 160-Gbit/s full channel time-division demultiplexing using a semiconductor optical amplifier hybrid integrated demultiplexer on a planer lightwave circuit. Error-free demultiplexing from a 160-Gbit/s signal to 8 channel 20 Gbit/s signals is successfully demonstrated. Results of a 160-Gbit/s optical time-division-multiplexed full channel OTDM signal transmission experiment using the circuit and successful 80-km transmission are presented.
