WALTHAM, Mass., March 15, 2016 — Excelitas Technologies Corp. has announced the surface-mount, 905-nm, pulsed semiconductor laser (SMD Laser), offering the capabilities of automated pick-and-place high-volume assembly.
The SMD design delivers higher beam placement accuracy than a lead-frame, plastic packages laser at comparable price points. The lasers can emit light either perpendicular or parallel to the mounting plane to meet the demand for applications such as lidar, time-of-flight, range finding, safety light curtains, adaptive cruise control and laser therapy. Features include multi-cavity lasers for concentrating emitting source size, quantum well structure, high-peak pulsed power into aperture, excellent power stability with temperature, and RoHS compliance.
The pulsed semiconductor lasers produce very high optical pulses centered at a wavelength of 905 nm. The laser diode chip is mounted on an FR4 leadless laminate carrier substrate and encapsulated to provide excellent thermal management. The encapsulate material is a molded epoxy resin for low-cost and high-volume manufacturing. Output can be customized to achieve higher yields.
