    The development of an array of 16 surface-normal electroabsorption modulators operating at 1550nm is presented. The modulator array is dedicated to the generation and processing of microwave photonics signals, targeting a modulation bandwidth in excess of 5GHz. The hybrid integration of the modulator arrays on carrier chips is described. Optical and microwave characterisation and modelling of the modulator array are presented.
