This paper describes some recent evolutions about optical generation of microwave signals. Among these, multiloop ring oscillator and harmonic generation allow both rise in frequency and wide tunability. Besides, using microresonators and optical sources like VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser) induces better integration and lower power consumption. Taking advantage of these attractive features, a new architecture of photonic microwave source is proposed.
