Kyocera SLD Laser Achieves Record LiFi Data Rate
Company to demonstrate over 90 Gbps with its DataLight LiFi
Kyocera SLD Laser has announced the achievement of the world’s fastest LiFi system that delivers greater than 90 gigabit per second (90 Gbps), 100 times faster data rate than 5G. The company is demonstrating its DataLight innovation for automotive and consumer applications at the Consumer Electronics Show, Las Vegas, January 5 – 7, 2022.
“We are thrilled to announce KSLD’s achievement of world record LiFi data rate of 90 Gbps and our demonstration of this DataLight innovation at CES 2022 in our exhibition booth,” said James Raring, CEO of Kyocera SLD Laser. “To pioneer the future of lighting and wireless connectivity, our ultra-high speed LiFi technology is eye-safe, impervious to ambient lighting, secure, efficient, and RF-free. KSLD is commercialising LiFi solutions for customers in mobility applications, automotive, and undersea, as well as RF-sensitive environments such as airplane cabins, smart factories, healthcare, secure government facilities, and smart cities.”
KSLD’s DataLight LiFi innovation uses dual-emission visible and infrared LaserLight sources. According to the company, these sources enable customers to commercialise potent intelligent illumination systems including functionality of spatially dynamic lighting, night vision illumination, accurate sensing and 3D LIDAR, as well as optical power transmission. DataLight engines can be configured for customer specific applications and have exciting potential to be performance optimised using artificial intelligence and machine learning.
