Start-up has optical fibre chip for mobile phones
A Bristol start-up has signed a commercial deal which will see its low power optical fibre comms technology used in mobile phones, camcorders and laptops.
Nanotech Semiconductor is a fabless chip company which has signed joint development agreements with two big name manufacturers to use its CMOS transceiver technology for plastic optical fibre links carrying a data rate of 1.25Gbit/s.
