Toslink (Toshiba-Link) was initially developed by Toshiba for its CD players. However, the use of this optical fiber connection system is currently not limited to CDs only but can be used to connect satellite dish receivers, DVD players and other equipment. It is a data transmission system that uses optical signals instead of the usual electrical signals thus its more reliable. Toslink has 4 major components: the transmission module that enables conversion of the electrical signals to optical signals. However, the receiving module reconverts the optical signals into electrical signals.

The other components are optical fiber cables that act like the physical transmission lines while the optical connectors enhance the connection of the receiving and transmission modules to the optical fiber cable.
