This high speed driver with integrated TEC controller delivers precision pulses which are generated internally by an on-board AWG (Arbitrary Waveform Generator). It is compatible with most of the laser diode form factors (Butterfly, TO etc.). Direct laser diode modulation is an alternative to EOM or AOM external modulation. See our fiber modulator basics tutorial for more information.

High speed laser diode driver KEY FEATURES :
The GUI software lets the user have total control of all module functions. It includes several libraries for software integration ((Labview VIs, DLLs, Hexa, Python etc.)
Applications of this driver includes high energy laser seeding, LIDAR testing, etc.
This high speed laser diode driver works alone or in series with other products in our range like :
All Aerodiode products can be connected together with a single GUI interface which consolidates all module functions. This allows the users to save a lot of time.
