We present design issue of RSOA and report fabricated-device/packaged-module characteristics for WDM-PON. Optical gain, 3dB ASE bandwidth and polarization dependent gain were about 25 dB, 35 nm and less than 1.0 dB, respectively. BER power penalty after 2.5 Gbps-20 km transmission was about 1.9 dB at 10-9 BER.
