AMI’s Model 766 short pulse seed laser diode driver is ideal for driving 14-pin butterfly packaged laser diode modules for applications which require pulse widths less than 1 ns. Applications include materials processing, time-resolved spectroscopy, LIDAR and others. 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 (PID) thermoelectric cooler controller (TEC) with current capability of 3 A and voltage capability of 4.2 V.
ADJUSTABLE PULSE WIDTHS < 250 ps TO 1 ns OUTPUT CURRENT UP TO 1.1 A COMPLIANCE VOLTAGE UP TO 10.0 V REPETITION RATE UP TO 1 MHz ON-BOARD TEC CONTROLLER 5.0 VDC INPUT POWER COMPACT SIZE ONLY 2.9” x 3.0” x 0.5”
