Notice: The PCO-7110 Series has been upgraded to the PCO-7111 Series. While the PCO-7110 Series is still available for existing designs and purchase, we recommend the PCO-7111 Series for new designs.
The PCO-7110 Series is a family of compact, economical OEM pulsed laser diode driver modules. They are designed to provide extremely fast, high current pulses with pulse currents to 50 A at fixed pulse widths (see Product Configurations below).
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 (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 low-impedance stripline between the mounting pads and the leads of the laser diode.
A current monitor output provides a straightforward means to observe the diode current waveform in real-time with an oscilloscope.
