The Model 773 is a low-cost, highly compact low voltage DC input power converter/laser diode driver designed to supply high pulsed current for laser diode-stack loads. Pulsed output current is 100A with less than or equal to 25us risetime into diode-stacks of 2-5V (up to 3ms pulse width for Er:glass) (18-24V load version under development) at an average power to the load of 1.0W. Performance over temperature is guaranteed from -32°C to +55°C. The driver weighs only 2.1 oz. and is ideally suited for rangefinding applications. The unit does not require a heatsink and offers open circuit and short circuit protection.

The Model 763 OEM seed laser diode driver (pump laser diode driver) is ideal for driving 14-pin butterfly packaged laser diode modules or semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA) for use in CW or pulsed fiber MOPA and EDFA systems. The driver is implemented as a transconductance amplifier (analog voltage in, scaled current out) with operation up to 1.2A, 3.0V and pulsewidths down to 10ns. The driver circuitry operates from a single +5V power source. All other required voltages are generated on the board by high efficiency switching power supplies. The 763 is manufactured to the RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC requirements.

The Model 823B Pockels Cell/Shutter Driver is designed for continuous pulsed applications. The compact construction utilizes solid-state MOSFET technology, giving excellent trigger noise immunity and a smooth output waveform. This technique eliminates common problems associated with krytron, avalanche, and transformer drivers. Amplitude is continuously variable up to 3.2kV by adjusting the internal high voltage power supply with a risetime of 30ns typical at full output. The output is push-pull, which yields high reliability by halving the voltage swing per side and which effectively cancels the EMI of the output pulse. Applications of the Model 823B include driving E-O switches for Q-switching solid-state lasers, high voltage pulser, and E-O Shutter.

The 742DP is a new generation of Laser Spot Tracker
Laser Spot Tracker
with wide flexibility for missile and platform tracker applications. The detector is temperature controlled and optimized for 1.06?m. Independent five channel noise detectors set the lowest thresholds to achieve long acquisition ranges for different background light and spot positions and special circuits resist sunlight blinding in any one or all quadrants. A range of N-type custom-designed detectors gives the highest performance at 1.06?m. A separate substrate allows the detector size or type to be optimized for your application. Model 742DP comprises a hermetically-sealed temperature-controlled detector with built-in front-end electronics, mounted on a SMT board. A second printed circuit board contains analog and digital processing circuits. The individual channels are digitized with a high-speed A-D converter and output as a serial digital interface for steering. An adaptive threshold control allows optimum signal-to-noise operation and power management is used to reduce power consumption.
Longwood, FL – September 23, 2010. Analog Modules, Inc. (“AMI”) received the William C. Schwartz Industry Innovation Award representing Seminole County from the Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission (“EDC”). Named in honor of the late William (“Bill”) C. Schwartz – an avid community leader, business pioneer and innovator within the field of optics and photonics – this EDC awards program recognizes local companies for innovative practices, products and ideas. It is fitting that AMI received this award as AMI is a 1979 spin-off from Bill Schwartz’s company, International Laser Systems (now Northrop Grumman Laser Systems). This year’s luncheon was held on September 8, 2010 at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in Orlando, FL where Ian Crawford, President of AMI and Tim Ayres, V.P. Laser Electronics Division accepted the award.
AMI was selected for its innovation in the design and development of a new generation of laser spot trackers utilizing a mixture of analog and digital technology with wide flexibility for missile and platform tracker applications. The latest high-speed digital technology is combined with an innovative switched-gain, low-noise preamplifier to give a dynamic range of over 1 million to one with superior accuracy and resolution. For more detailed technical information, see the Model 742DP Laser Spot Tracker on our website at http://www.analogmodules.com/admincenter/datasheets/742dp.pdf.
Analog Modules, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of its OEM Seed Laser Diode Driver, Model 762.
AMI’s Model 762 OEM programmable seed laser diode drivers (pump laser diode drivers) are ideal for driving 14-pin butterfly packaged laser diode modules for use in CW or Pulsed fiber MOPA systems. Applications include materials processing, LIDAR systems for remote sensing, laser communication and rangefinding. 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. Pulsewidths down to 20ns or less are possible with typical optical pulse risetimes of 10ns. Settings can be made through analog operation by the use of multi-turn potentiometers and providing an external TTL trigger pulse or through the on-board FPGA which contains a comprehensive pulse generation system. The board includes a bidirectional PID thermoelectric cooler controller, provides sensing for a back facet monitor and outputs a digital laser fire indicator pulse and scaled analog output. RoHS and military versions are available.
AMI is proud to announce our latest product. The Model 7510 is a high gain low noise APD-preamp optical receiver. The compact construction (modified TO-8 header) and PCB mounting capability make the 7510 ideal for miniature applications. The thermo-electric heater/cooler allows the highest performance to be achieved with an external control circuit. For detailed technical specifications, view the data sheet on our website.
