This laser driver generates CW and modulated optical signal from a Butterfly laser diode or any other form-factor. It is USB controlled with a GUI and several libraries are available for system integration (Labview, DLLs, Python, Hexa etc.). It is also available at board level for OEM integration.

This laser driver with integrated TEC controller delivers low noise current which can be modulated by an external 0-5 V signal. It is compatible with any butterfly pinning (Type 1, Type 2, Type 2 Bias-T etc.). It is the most compact laser driver with such performances and this makes it an ideal tool for OEM integration into your product.
Butterfly laser diodes such as Thorlabs, photodigm, II-VI or lumentum are perfectly well controlled.

These products are now offered by AeroDIODE, Logo_aerodiodea new ALPhANOV spin-off company. The product manager is available to answer any technical of commercial question.

Product reference: CCS-CW
