TOSLINK

(TOShibaLINK) An optical interface for digital audio connections that provides a data rate from 125 Mbps to 1.2 Gbps. Developed by Toshiba and part of the S/PDIF interface, TOSLINK sockets are found on A/V receivers, set-top boxes, CD/DVD players and TVs. See S/PDIF and audio cable.


Digital Audio Connections
Both part of the S/PDIF interface, a TOSLINK socket is commonly found next to its electrical and coaxial counterpart. If TOSLINK is not used, the stopper plug (bottom right) prevents the red LED beam from escaping.







Optical Audio
"Optical Audio" is a TOSLINK designation. On this Roku streaming video set-top box, analog audio is provided for legacy TV sets. Neither analog audio nor TOSLINK are supported on Apple TV, Fire TV or Android TV, which have only HDMI output. See set-top box.

Utilizing a proprietary high-power, high-reliability infrared LED allows the new TOSLINK models to be driven at a lower current than existing products[sup.
In addition to the ability to be driven at a lower current, the new TOSLINK models also employ an optical receiving module that uses a single-chip light sensor IC, which contains a photodiode, an amplifier and a waveform-shaping circuit (automatic threshold control circuit), and operates at 20mA (max.
The new TOSLINK models are available in both horizontal-type and vertical-type packages: The TOTX1350(F) and TORX1350(F) are horizontal-type optical transmitting and receiving modules; and the TOTX1350(V,F) and TORX1350(V,F) are vertical-type optical transmitting and receiving modules.
Pricing and Availability Mass production of the new TOSLINK models is scheduled to begin in April.
Zodiac Platinum: The Perfect Digital Hub In addition to the custom-built USB chip capable of carrying DSD128 and up 24-bit, 384 kHz PCM files, the Zodiac Platinum boasts a wide range of connectivity options, including AES/EBU and S/PDIF I/O, a couple of TOSLINK inputs (PCM only), a set of balanced and unbalanced analog outs, as well as an unbalanced RCA input.
The player has both analog and digital outputs, the latter being a TOSLINK jack.
