Paper Abstract

This project has developed a low cost in-home network compatible with network standard IEEE1394b. We have developed all components of the network, from the red resonant cavity LEDs and VCSELs as light sources, the driver circuitry, plastic optical fibres for transmission, up to the network management software. We demonstrate plug-and-play operation of S100 and S200 (125 and 250Mbps) data streams using 650nm RCLEDs, and S400 (500 Mbps) data streams using VCSELs. The network software incorporates Home Audio Video interoperability (HAVi), which allows any HAVi device to be hot-plugged into the network and be instantly recognised and controllable over the network.
