PLD12500 laser diode driver

Wavelength Electronics has launched the PLD12500, a 12.5A laser diode driver featuring a smaller package, higher performance and improved heat dissipation. Together with the PLD10000, it has a new compact heatsink and fan shroud.

These high current PLD drivers couple the high-reliability architecture of the company's lower-current PLD Series with a robust high-current output stage.

To speed product development, the PLD10EV Evaluation Board can be configured within minutes to take full advantage of the versatility and functionality offered by the PLD10000 and PLD12500 drivers.

The PLD10000 and PLD12500 can drive lasers with compliance voltage as high as 27.5 V, and both include laser safety features.
