This laser 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 for system integration (Labview, DLLs, Python, Hexa etc.). It is also available at a board level for OEM integration (see the board level laser diode driver page)

This laser driver with integrated TEC control 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 laser driver with such performances and this makes it an ideal tool for OEM integration into your product.

Key features : 

  • Compatible with butterfly laser diodes (Type 1 or Type 2 pinning) and other form factors
  • Output Current : 0.00 mA – 1500.00 mA
  • Current Set-Point Resolution (@ 200 mA Set-Point): 0.05 mA
  • Output Voltage Maximum: 4.8 V (up to 12V optional)
  • The user can set 4 starting modes (OEM mode, previous settings mode (laser diode at 0 mA),  etc.)
  • USB, manual & analog (0-5 V) power adjustment

Applications of this product includes non-destructive control, laser seeding etc.

Laser driver GUI Software :

The module includes a user control software which lets the user have total control of all module functions. It includes several libraries for software integration (LabVIEW VIs, DLLs, Hexa , Python etc.)

The integrated laser diode protection circuits protect your device 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. A soft-start current ramp protects the laser from the possibility of thermal shock or current surges.

This laser 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 electronic modules platform

Butterfly Laser diodes such as photodigm or lumentum are perfectly well controlled.
