We demonstrate a photonic microwave generator on the heterogeneous silicon-InP platform. Waveguide photodiodes with a 3 dB bandwidth of 65 GHz and 0.4 A/W responsivity are integrated with lasers that tune over 42 nm with less than 150 kHz linewidth. Microwave signal generation from 1 to 112 GHz is achieved.
