Paper Abstract

Visible Light Communications (VLC) as well as Mode Division Multiplexing is a research area that is currently receiving significant interest which is beginning to migrate from proof-of-principle demonstrations towards optimized engineering. The ability to easily transmit and receive arbitrarily encoded and modulated optical signals is critical to prototyping in a lab environment. Software defined radios enable cost-effective development and testing of almost any coding scheme and modulation format with a significant bandwidth, if required. We present our experiences with using software defined radios and other platforms to drive LEDs and laser diodes and subsequently receive the transmitted signals.
