We demonstrate an ultra-compact monolithic integrated silicon-based slave transceiver integrating a D-BPSK receiver and a polarization insensitive reflective modulator. We successfully achieved 25 Gbit/s OOK-NRZ modulation for the upstream and 25 Gbit/s D-BPSK detection for the downstream as well as transmission over the full C-band and few km.
