Summary The Free Space Optical (FSO) LED link has the ability to connect two devices at high-speed while taking advantage of the high bandwidth of optical communication and the low cost and low power consumption of LEDs. This link will provide an alternative to traditional RF wireless communication that is currently approaching its bandwidth limitations. As the speed increases for data transmitted over a wire, it is necessary that wireless communication continues limitless. The FSO link also outperforms USB 2.0 and Bluetooth allowing for an additional market and perhaps a new standard for data transmission. This will become necessary as file sizes increase and multimedia dominates the business world. A key advantage to the LED system will be cost. The FSO link will consist of a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter will have a very less cost and will operate on two AA batteries. The receiver will also be the same. Overall the cost of this system is significantly less than a comparable LASER optical link and draws less power. This project aims at designing a free space optic transmitter in the FSO system. The details of the receiver are discussed in the project "Free Space Optic Receiver". This work was performed as separate project but in cooperation with this project. The result of the project after testing, debugging, and data analysis was a working link at 13 meter with a speed of 100 Mbps. The target market for this project is the typical consumer who has a need for high-speed and low cost data transmission.
