Introduction

This SOA pulse driver delivers precision pulses which are generated internally by an on-board pulse generator, or on-demand from an external TTL signal. SOA Amplifiers (Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers) driven in nanosecond pulse regime can be compared with AOMs, EOMs or direct laser diode modulators (see comparative table and our tutorial : fiber modulator basics). It is the only solution meeting all the constraints for a reliable, stable and efficient fiber modulation.

This SOA pulse driver is a very compact unit optimized for single-shot to CW performance with pulse width lengths down to 1 nanosecond.

 

Key features

  • High dynamic range: >48 dB, High extinction ratio : >~50 dB
  • Lossless device
  • Timing Jitter down to 8 ps,
  • Repetition rate up to 250 MHz
  • User design pulse shape (SOA-shape only)
  • User-set pulse width from 1 ns to CW (up to 8 µsec for SOA-shape)
  • TEC temperature control
  • No wavelength variation along the pulse duration
  • Adjustable safety limits, current levels (average/peak), SOA temperature, etc.
  • USB & analogue control.

 

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 etc.)

This SOA Pulsed Driver  works alone or in series with other products in our range like:

See our detailed Tutorials on:

This Pulsed SOA Driver is an ideal solution to drive most of the commercially available SOA Amplifiers (Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers) like, for example, Innolume  or Thorlabs.
