This laser diode driver generates CW and modulated optical signals from a butterfly laser diode or any other form-factor. It is USB controlled with a GUI. Several libraries are available:  LabVIEW, DLLs, Python, Hexa. Minimum order quantity: 5 Pieces. For unitary evaluation module see this product : laser driver

This laser diode driver with integrated TEC controller delivers low noise current which can be modulated by an external 0-5V signal. It is available for any butterfly pinning (Type 1, Type 2, Type 2 Bias-T etc.). It is the most compact board level laser diode driver with such performances and this makes it an ideal tool for OEM integration into your product

Laser diode driver Key Features :

  • Small form factor ideal for OEM integration
  • Compatible for butterfly laser diodes and other laser diode form factors (Type 1 or Type 2 pinning)
  • Output Current : 3 versions :  800 mA , 1500 mA, 2500 mA
  • Output Voltage Maximum:  3 versions  4.8V, 5V or up to 24V (see specifications)
  • Current Set-Point Resolution (@ 200 mA Set-Point): 0.05 mA
  • USB, manual & analog (0-5 V) power adjustment
  • 4 starting modes can be configurated by the user (OEM mode, previous settings mode (laser diode at 0 mA),  etc )

    Laser diode driver GUI interface
    LabVIEW, Hexa, DLLs and Python Libraries available

The GUI software lets the user have total control of all module functions. It is easily configurable with several access levels (operator/expert etc.) . It includes several libraries for software integration (LabVIEW VIs, DLLs, Hexa , Python etc.)

The integrated laser diode protection circuits protect your devices under test at all times. A user set the current limit and a special temperature protection clamp both the bias current and the operating temperature to prevent damage to the laser. A soft-start current ramp protects the laser from the possibility of thermal shock or current surges. The GUI control software is included with the purchase price and offers users simple set-up and control.

This laser diode driver  works alone or in series with other products from our range including:


Complex systems, such as fiber lasers, can be quickly developed on this module platform.

Butterfly Laser diodes such as photodigm, II-VI, or lumentum are perfectly well controlled.
