Pulsed laser diode driver & TEC control
This pulsed laser diode driver with high speed performances and integrated TEC controller generates any pulsed or CW optical signal from 1 nanosecond to CW.
CCS is a very compact and modular module which can be delivered with or without mounting sockets for butterfly laser diodes. Optimized for single-shot to CW performance with pulse width lengths down to 1 nanosecond, this pulsed laser diode driver with integrated TEC controller delivers precision pulses which are generated internally by an on-board pulse generator, or on demand from an external TTL signal.
It is the most compact device with such performances and this makes it an ideal tool for OEM integration into your product.
These products are now offered by AeroDIODE, a new ALPhANOV spin-off company. The product manager is available to answer any technical of commercial question.
