In this paper, the design of AXI4-Stream based modulator IP core for Visible Light Communication is reported. The modulator IP core conforms to the AXI4-Stream protocol standard, which is widely used in System-on-Chip (SoC) design. There are three modulation types in this IP core namely, Binary Phase Shift Keying (BPSK), Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (QPSK), and Quadrature Amplitude Modulation-16 (QAM-16). These modulation types are commonly used in DCO-OFDM system. The modulation types can be selected programmatically from software that runs in main processor by accessing the control register. The output of the modulator is designed for DCO-OFDM modulation using 64-point IFFT. According to the simulation results, this modulator IP core can achieve a throughput of 95.36 Mb/s, 184.77 Mb/s, and 347.81 Mb/s for BPSK, QPSK, and QAM-16, respectively. This modulator IP core is reusable in DCO-OFDM system, so it increases productivity in DCO-OFDM system design.
