Sharp introduces a new generation of Blu-ray laser components with industry leading output of 250mW.
The new Sharp Blu-ray laser diodes enable four to six times faster recording of blu-ray discs.
Sharp offers a small 3.3mm GH04P25A4G Blu-ray laser component for notebook drives and a 5.6mm version (GH04P25A2G) of PC Blu-ray drives.
Sharp will start mass production of the new Blu-ray lasers in April with a monthly maximum capacity of 700,000 units. We can expect Blu-ray drives in the 2nd half of 2008 that will feature these new Sharp Blu-ray components.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
