Integrated Kerr micro-combs are a powerful source for generating multiple wavelength channels to achieve photonic radio frequency (RF) and microwave signal processing, particularly in the context of transversal filters. They offer competitive advantages including a compact device footprint, high versatility, large numbers of wavelengths, and wide Nyquist bands. Here, we review recent progress on Kerr micro-comb-based photonic RF and microwave high bandwidth temporal signal processing, including integral and fractional Hilbert transforms, differentiators as well as integrators. The strong potential of optical micro-combs for RF photonic applications in terms of functions and integrability is also discussed.
