Introduction

This high speed driver with integrated TEC controller delivers precision nanosecond pulses which are generated internally by an on-board AWG (Arbitrary Waveform Generator). It is compatible with most of the laser diode form factors (Butterfly, TO etc.). Direct laser diode modulation is an alternative to EOM or AOM external modulation. See our fiber modulator basics tutorial for more information.

 

Key features

  • Direct modulation of nanosecond laser pulses with any shape
  • Built-in pulse AWG with internal or remote triggering
  • 0 to 1.6 A output current with 16 bit/48 dB/30 μA resolution
  • Integrated TEC controller with over temperature protection
  • A special thermal interface is included which do not require any thermal grease
  • Special mode for laser diode “gain switch peak” suppression
  • Two versions for either direct modulation or external modulation (see spec table and pictures)
  • 3 Integrated Pulse Delay Generators
  • GUI software and several libraries software integration (LabVIEW, DLLs, Hexa, Python)

 

Applications

Applications of this driver include high energy laser seeding, LIDAR testing, etc.

 

GUI & Libraries

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

All AeroDIODE products can be connected together with a single GUI interface which consolidates all module functions. This allows the users to save a lot of time.

This high speed laser diode driver  works alone or in series with other products in the AeroDIODE range like:

DFB or Bragg-based laser diodes such as lumentum or 3SP are perfectly well controlled.
