Array waveguide grating attract great attentions for wavelength division multiplexing fiber-optic communication system. In this paper, we design and analyze the integrated optical 64-channel arrayed waveguide grating (AWG) multiplexer/demultiplexer (mux/demux) with 0.4 nm (50GHz) channel spacing at 1.55μm based on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) waveguide. Assuming launching the fundamental mode as our initial mode propagating along these waveguides, the bandwidth level is -30dB, the uniformity of these devices is 0.5dB, and the maximum bend loss in 264 channel waveguides of the phased array of the AWG is 0.093dB in accordance of the simulation regulations. The crosstalk of the AWG mux/demux is less than -25dB. The insertion loss is controlled below 5dB.
