LONGWOOD, Fla., April 25, 2016 — Analog Modules Inc. has released the Model 766 short pulse seed laser diode driver with applications such as seeding fiber lasers for materials processing, time-resolve spectroscopy and lidar. The driver offers user-adjustable pulse width capability from 150 ps to 1 ns for driving 14-pin butterfly packaged laser diode modules at output currents up to 1.1 A. The driver circuitry operates from a single 5 V power source. All other needed voltages are generated on the board by high efficiency switching power supplies. The driver supplies a bidirectional proportional-integral-derivative thermoelectric cooler controller with current capability of 3 A and voltage capability of 4.2 V.
