A novel method of photonic arbitrary waveform generation is presented, which combines photonic digital-to-analog conversion technique and IQ upconversion. A 2-bit prototype is built experimentally and a linear frequency-modulated waveform with a bandwidth of 4 GHz is synthesized with a 2-GHz baseband width.
