Visible Light Communication Pre-equalization Technology

Part of the Signals and Communication Technology book series (SCT)


In the visible light communication system, the serious unevenness of the channel to the realization of high-speed data transmission has brought great obstacles, although the use of OFDM and other high-order modulation technology to a certain extent optimize system performance, but make the system capacity to further enhance. Transmitter also need to use a variety of pre-equalization technologies, the frequency response to the LED to compensate, thereby improving the system’s modulation bandwidth.
