In this paper, we present the optical elements needed for the fabrication of a wavelength selective silicon photonic integrated switching matrix. We focus on the device proposed in the European project IRIS, which is a wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) transponder aggregator. It implements a colourless, directionless, and contentionless reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) node for metro transport networks. The building blocks are described as well as the system specifications and the system architecture.
