Abstract

This paper presents new experimental results on a polymer light-emitting diode based visible light communications system. For the first time we demonstrate a 10 Mb/s link based on the on-off keying data format with real time equalization on a field programmable gate array. The 10 Mb/s transmission speed is available at a bit error rate less than 4.6 × 10−3, which is the limit for forward error correction. At a BER of 10−6 a transmission speed of 7 Mb/s is readily achievable.
