We demonstrate a monolithically integrated quadrature coherent receiver photonic integrated curcuit on an InP substrate with a 90° optical hybrid and two balanced 56 GHz pin-photodetectors on chip level and as a packaged device. The presented devices enable the use of 56/64 Gbaud dual polarisation 16-QAM signals either in the C-band or the L-band.
