Visible Light Communication Post-equalization Technology

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


Equalization can be divided into two categories: frequency domain equalization and time domain equalization. The so-called frequency domain equalization corrects the system’s frequency characteristics, so that the total characteristics, including the baseband system equalizer, satisfy the undistorted transmission conditions. The so-called time domain equalization directly corrects distorted waveforms to satisfy the requirements of no inter-symbol interference criterion in the time domain, with parameters generated by the equalizer.
