Fraunhofer gets high-speed internet from LED lights

Thursday 11 April 2013 | 18:31 CET | News
The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI is developing technology that makes it possible to use standard off-the-shelf LED room lights for data transmission. Data rates of up to 800 Mbit/s were reached by the LED room lights WLAN under lab conditions, while a complete real-time system exhibited at trade fairs reached data throughput of 500 Mbit/s. The institute has now found new components for data transmission over the LEDs that will lead to significantly higher bandwidth used, with throughput rates of up to 3 Gbit/s reached in lab experiments. The new components will be presented at FOE
