Seed laser diode driver

Distributor BFi Optilas has added the OEM seed laser diode driver (Model 762), produced by Analog Modules, to its product portfolio. The programmable pump laser diode drivers are ideal for driving 14-pin butterfly packaged laser diode modules for use in CW or pulsed fibre MOPA systems. Applications include materials processing, lidar, systems for remote sensing, laser communication and range finding.

The driver circuitry operates from a single +5V power source and is capable of providing up to 2.5A of drive current with compliance voltages up to 2.5V. Pulse widths down to 20ns or shorter are possible with typical optical pulse rise times of 10ns.
