Hamamatsu Photonics has introduced a new RC-LED, the L10881, to its range of high quality LEDs. The new device features a high-speed response (frequency cut-off of 70Mhz typical), and a high fibre-coupled output power when coupled to a plastic optical fibre (POF), typically –2dBm. The new LED is moulded into a plastic package with lens and features an emission wavelength of 650nm.
The high-speed response, high output power and package design make the L10881 an ideal and affordable solution for POF communications around the office, home and in LAN networks. It’s resistance to electromagnetic noise also makes it very suitable to be used in more demanding locations.
