Abstract

In this letter, we aim for maximizing the throughput of a visible light communication (VLC) system. Explicitly, we conceive a soft-in soft-out decoder providing soft feedback for the classic run length limited (RLL) codes, hence facilitating iterative decoding for exchanging valuable extrinsic information between the RLL and the error correction modules of a VLC system. Furthermore, we propose a unity rate code for our VLC system, which, hence, becomes capable of matching the ON–OFF keying capacity, while maintaining a flicker-free dimming value of 50%.
