We report applications of integrated Kerr micro-combs to RF photonic systems and demonstrate a wide range of advanced functions including a microwave photonic intensity differentiator, filters and true time delays. The on-chip Kerr optical comb is CMOS-compatible and serves as a high-performance multi-wavelength source for transversal filter functions, thus greatly reducing the cost, size, and complexity of the system.
