Performance of Di-code Pulse Position Modulation Technique in Diffuse Indoor Wireless Optical Communication Systems

By Adel M Buhafa and Martin J.N. Sibley


The bandwidth of the indoor optical wireless Pulse Position Modulation (PPM) system can be\ud exploited to improve the receiver sensitivity by using Di-code Pulse Position Modulation (Di-PPM)\ud technique. This paper analysis the receiver sensitivity of indoor optical wireless Di-PPM systems, over a slightly dispersive channel, uses a bandwidth-limited PIN-bipolar (PINBJT) optical receiver, zero guard interval and pre-detection filter based on a simple third-order Butterworth filter, that authorizes the receiver to operate over channels with bandwidth as low as 1.2 times the bit rate. The received pulse shape is a convolution between the impulse response of a diffuse optical wireless link in a ceiling bounce model and rectangular waveform, the operating bit-rate chosen is 100Mbit/s. In this paper the performance analysis is extended in order to include the effects of intersymbol interference\ud (ISI) on error probability and some important errors: wrong slot, erasure and false alarm. A\ud mathematical model is then presented showing how the transfer function of the indoor optical wireless Di-PPM receiver can be calculated. Results are obtained and the pulse shape at input of receiver decision device is illustrated by using MathCAD software
