The PCO-7810 Series provides a compact, pulsed-current OEM laser diode driver module that provides a fixed, narrow pulse width allowing you to choose your optimum current and frequency. These modules include their own integrated high voltage power supply reducing the amount of support circuitry required to install them in your application.
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, 5.6 mm, and 9 mm packages. To accommodate other diode packages and mounting configurations, two solder pads at the end of the board accept various laser diode packages mounted on-axis to the driver. Alternately, low-inductance stripline cable can be used for connection to a remotely located diode.
The output current is controlled by the voltage at the high-voltage input. The output frequency is controlled by the trigger input frequency.
A current monitor output may be viewed with an oscilloscope, providing a straightforward means to observe the diode current waveform in real-time.
