Optical fiber communications (Plastic fiber)

Optical fiber communication using plastic optical fiber (POF) is used for communication between devices and within devices and equipments in fields such as factory automation, consumer electronics, automotive, and medical.

POF communication has the features of being "less susceptible to external noise," "resistant to bending," "lightweight," and "inexpensive," and in recent years, high-speed, large-capacity, and high-quality data communication is becoming more and more common.

Hamamatsu offers transmitter/receiver photo ICs for POF communications that support a wide variety of transmission speeds.
