This paper reviews some of the key enabling technologies for present and future optoelectronic integrated circuits. This review concentrates mainly on technology for lasers, waveguides, modulators, and fast photodetectors as the basis for next generation communication systems. Emphasis is placed on integration of components and mass production of a generic intelligent transceiver.
