Fraunhofer has developed components in the lamp allowing on the shelf LEDs to transmit data at a rate of 1Gbps on a single frequency
(PRWEB UK) 10 April 2013
It has been reported in GIGaom that as part of their work researching the much talked about LED broadband, or Li-Fi as it is sometimes referred to, Fraunhofer has developed components in the lamp allowing on the shelf LEDs to transmit data at a rate of 1Gbps on a single frequency. The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute achieved this by expanding the size of the transmission bands, therefore allowing more data to be crammed inside. In reporting their findings, Fraunhofer also highlighted the fact that the technology could also be put to use within other industries such as the automotive sector.
Simple Lighting co. is renowned for its vast collection of home and outdoor LED lighting online. Specialising in LED tape lights and strip lights, the team are naturally interested by progressions within the industry, of which there have been a number of significant findings recently. A representative reflects on what this could mean for the industry.
“Experts have already been talking about how the LED technology could be used as a high-powered supplemental downlink for streaming videos. Alongside this Fraunhofer itself has mentioned how the LED headlights in a car could be used to beam information to cars ahead. Within the past year alone, we have seen a number of revelations into quality and efficiency of LEDs, as well as usage within a number of different areas.”
