Optical fiber transmitter and receiver (photodarlington)

  1. Apr 7, 2005 #1
    Hello,

    How can we convert parallel-to-serial address and send it as an optical signal?

    Have a look at the link below if you folks don't know what I mean - the last (3-4 lines) paragraph of the pdf file:

    http://www.hep.yorku.ca/menary/courses/electronics/3150/lab_manual/opt.pdf [Broken]

    Waiting for a response!

    Thanks.

    I think what they're looking for is a shift register that can be used for parallel-in/serial-out.

    Regards
