A structure for multiband-UWB waveforms generation is proposed using an N tap microwave photonic filter with positive and negative taps. The system is based on phase inversion in electro-optical modulators and the sliced broadband source optical signal by means of a structure of AWGs, which permits us to obtain a high number of taps. System performance is experimentally shown by the generation of a uniform waveform. Capabilities as reconfigurability and frequency tuning have been also experimentally demonstrated. The flexibility of the system allows us to obtain multiband UWB waveforms, which fulfill the FCC spectral requirements.
