PCO-7110-50-15 50A 15ns Laser Diode Driver
The PCO-7110-50-15 is a compact, economical OEM pulsed laser diode driver module. It is designed to provide extremely fast, high current pulses. It provides pulse currents to 50A, at a fixed pulse width of 15 nanoseconds, at frequencies as high as 11KHz.
Mounting pads are provided to mount the laser diode directly to the driver. The four-hole mounting pattern accepts TO-18, TO-5, TO-52, 5.6MM, and 9MM packages (EG&G Optoelectronics R, S, T and U packages), as well as other packages of similar dimensions and lead spacing, mounted perpendicular to the driver circuit board. To facilitate different packages and mounting preferences, there are two solder pads on the end of the board to accept various laser diode packages mounted on axis to the driver. Furthermore, the diode can be connected remotely from the driver using a low-impedance stripline interconnection between the mounting pads and the leads of the laser diode.
A current monitor output may be viewed with an oscilloscope, providing a straightforward means to observe the diode current waveform in real-time.
