In this letter we present a right-angle-bent coplanar waveguide (CPW) which we developed for the application of the driver amplifier-integrated (DAI) 40 Gbps traveling wave electroabsorption modulated laser module. The developed CPW realized parallel progression of the radio frequency (RF) and light using a dielectric overlay structure and wedge bonding on the bending section. The measured $S_{11}$ and $S_{21}$ of the developed CPW were kept below-10 dB up to 35 GHz and -3 dB up to 43 GHz, respectively. These measured results of the CPW were in good agreement with the simulation results and demonstrated the applicability of the CPW to the 40 Gbps communication module.
