The PCO-7111 is a compact OEM pulsed laser diode driver module with multiple current configuration. The PCO-7111 versions are 40, 50 and 100 Amps (A) of output to the diode at a fixed pulse width.
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 means to observe the diode current waveform in real-time with an oscilloscope.
