Abstract

Here, the authors propose and apply two novel schemes of multi-band carrierless amplitude and phase ( m -CAP) modulation for spatial modulation (SM)-based visible light communications (VLC) systems. In SM, both spatial and signal constellation are utilised to improve the performance of the m -CAP system. Here, they have adopted the non-DC m -CAP which is a power efficient technique with no DC-bias. The bit error rate (BER) performance and the spectral efficiency of the proposed systems are compared with single-input single-output (SISO) and multiplexing multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) m -CAP systems. Results demonstrate that non-DC m -CAP, with the same spectral efficiency as that of SISO m -CAP, outperforms other schemes in terms of BER due to its power efficiency; however, a higher spectral efficiency can be achieved by the SM-MIMO m -CAP scheme.
