In this paper, a photonic-assisted multi-channel compressive sampling scheme is proposed with one pseudo-random binary sequence (PRBS) source and Wavelength Division Multiplexing-based time delay. Meanwhile, the restricted isometry property of sensing matrix determined by the optimized time delay pattern is analyzed. In experiment, a four-channel photonic-assisted system with 5-GHz bandwidth was set up, where four-channel PRBS signals were generated by adding fiber-induced constant time delays to four-wavelength modulated PRBS signal, and a signal composed of twenty tones was recovered faithfully with four analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) with only 120-MHz-bandwidth.
