In this paper, a novel reconfigurable 5-tap photonic RF filter based on Opto-VLSI processor is proposed where an Opto-VLSI processor is used in conjunction with a 5-fibre Bragg grating (FBG) array to slice the spectrum of a broad band light source, thus achieving commensurate true-time delays and variable tap weights. The proposed photonic RF filter structure is experimentally demonstrated by means of several examples which show the capability of the Opto-VLSI processor to synthesise transversal RF filter responses with adaptive weights.
