Sharp is not only committed to reducing power consumption in televisions, but also in mobile phones with internal optical wiring. Not only is power reduced but also the system can transmit data at 1.25Gbps. Currently the company is working to overcome so-called ‘glitches’ – instantaneous pulse signal that are generated when the clock signals are being switched, increasing the bit error rate of reproduced data – that which make the technology difficult to produce. If it can be overcame though, the mobile phone power reduces to 108mW and Sharp is working to drop that even more to the 50mW range; impressive.
