Abstract

Feed-forward pre-equalization is investigated to extend the transmission capability of μLED-based links, providing better receiver sensitivities up to 5dB compared with post-equalization. Error-free 2Gb/s free-space VLC over 0.6m is demonstrated using a PAM-4 modulated blue μLED and an APD receiver.
