Toshiba launches fiber optic transmission modules

JAPAN: Toshiba Corp. has launched the latest addition to its TOSLINKTM fiber optic transmission device line-up: fiber optic transmission modules that can send and receive signals from DC to 500 kb/s with low consumption current up to a maximum distance of 10m when using APF (all plastic fiber).

A newly developed high-luminosity LED allows the new products to be driven at a lower current than the existing products. Also, while existing products consume the same current, regardless of whether the module is engaged in optical communication or not, the new products has a circuit configuration that drastically reduces current consumption at times of no communication and that is highly suited for use in energy-sensitive applications.

The new products will be available in two package types: samples of horizontal-type transmitting and receiving modules, TOTX1353(F) and TORX1353(F), will be available by the end of March, with mass production in April; samples of vertical-type transmitting and receiving modules, TOTX1353(V,F) and TORX1353(V,F), will be available by the end of April, with mass production in May.
